Located on the 3rd floor of the Pond Student Union at ISU, our office area serves as a space for military-connected students to utilize for studying, socializing, advising and more.

We have a computer resource center, in addition to the presence of our facility and emotional support dog, Hero, on-site. Our Career Closet is available to help military-connected students with attire needs for job interviews and other professional settings.

Our office also hosts the on-campus Armed Forces Club, a chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA). The Pocatello and the Idaho Falls ISU campuses meet regularly.
