SARATOGA SPRINGS — Empire State University celebrated the opening of its Veteran and Military Resource Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday. 

“At Empire State University,” said school president Lisa Vollendorf, “we are very proud to serve military and veteran students. We serve more of this population than any other four-year public university or college in the State of New York. And here’s what I want to say to that: we want to serve more.”

According to Empire State University, the new center will offer both in-person and online services for the school’s veterans and military-affiliated students. It’s located at 111 West Ave in Saratoga Springs.

Notable attendees of the event included New York State Senator James Tedisco, a representative who spoke on behalf of Congressman Paul Tonko, and school mascot Blue the Bluebird.
