Chapter Voices • University of Florida:
In the 2015-2016 academic year the UF Collegiate Veterans Society (CVS) won Organization of the Year at the University of Florida. Due to accomplishments like The Chair of Honor (a POW/MIA Chair) being added to the university’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. During the 1st Gator Football game of the season the Chair of Honor was revealed to 90,000 football fans.
In the coming year, the UF Collegiate Veterans Society is advocating for the emplacement of similar POW/MIA Chairs of Honor at all stadiums on the UF campus and also hopes to earn Organization of the Year a second time. The UF CVS is also working with the UF Student Government to plan a month long Veteran and Military Awareness Month across the entire campus.

SVA Chapter President Mark Rattray says, “CVS has been included and will help shape Gator Veterans culture for all Student Veterans and Dependents. I believe that SVA Chapters are an important part of helping military members adjust to student life. Being a part of SVA helps to connect military student organizations from different campuses all across the United States.”
