Veterans Guiding Veterans provides incoming and returning Texas State student veterans with guidance to succeed in their academic endeavors. The peer-to-peer program matches new student veterans with an enrolled student veteran who has attended Texas State for at least two semesters and who has as similar a background as possible, including academic goals and interests, to that of the incoming veteran. Veterans Guiding Veterans is funded by a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and in partnership with Tutor Corps.
