STRIPES-VUB announces Night Vision for student veterans. This is an ongoing Thursday night weekly event for student veterans of any school and at any stage in the process to meet together for a short adult student vet focused program and vet-to-vet networking. Light dinner is provided and attendees get an opportunity to vote on the program topic for the following week.

Completing a degree anywhere requires focus and having a clear vision of what you want in life. Our goal is to make Night Vision the place to go to help refocus on your target.

If you are an active STRIPES-VUB participant, this event is stipend eligible. Each Night Vision that you attend is equal to 1 credit. Earn 4 credits and you can request a $40 stipend.

Often times our significant others are critical to achieving our long term goal and keeping our vision of the future in focus. As a part of your support system they are welcome to join us.

If childcare is an issue, please contact us by email or phone to RSVP a spot for your child at least 48 hours before the event. We can arrange an activity table and one of our student workers to be available for oversight.

To make sure we have enough food, please RSVP by calling 405-974-3686 or via email at STRIPES-VUB@uco.edu
