Student Veterans of America recognizes the achievements of Husky Veterans from the University of Southern Maine. Husky Vets kicked off the 2017 year with sending five student veterans and two faculty members to NatCon 2017. Chapter Leader, Camden Ege, was a presenter for a session a NatCon, the chapter participated in the National Business Plan Competition, and the chapter's advisor, Lorrie Spaulding, was a finalist for Chapter Advisor of the Year. "I think our biggest take-away were various best practices on chapter management. We are still a relatively young chapter, with plenty of details to iron out. NatCon, and the connections made there, provide a great opportunity to improve chapter efficiency," says Ege.

SVA Chapter Leader David Scott states that the mission of his SVA Chapter, "We provide the tools to empower veterans to pursue their educational and professional goals and increase social mobility through the transformative power of education. We serve as the voice of the veteran population on campus to a faculty and generation that appreciative of military service, but largely unaware of what it entails and the unique challenges of being a non-traditional student." Over the past academic year, UofMSVO has increased their membership by over 300% which has resulted in a 75% increase in attendance at their monthly meetings. UofMSVO attributes this increase in engagement with student veterans on their campus to their efforts to be more involved in their community at large.
