DeVry Military Resource Club


Mission
Our goal is to ease the transition from service to studying by providing members with the same camaraderie we became accustomed to in the military. We are a family of veterans, with a common calling to help student veterans. The club meets periodically to provide each other with the latest information on careers, scholarships, grants, housing and much more.

DeVry Military Resource Club has been a member of the
Student Veterans of America (SVA) since 2008.

Club Activity
We meet periodically to provide each other with the latest information on careers, scholarships, grants, housing and much more.

Established in 2008, the DMRC strives to build a healthy camaraderie and keep military traditions alive by engaging DeVry students with service backgrounds in group activities and team building exercises including sporting events, movies, concerts, paint ball matches, and classroom help as well as specialized events such as:

Annual Events
Protect & Serve: Pre-game Tribute to Addison Veterans and First Responders 
Join us at Addison Trail High School on October 4th at 7:15 pm for a commemorative tribute to those who have answered the call! 

* Please check back periodically to view the upcoming events DMRC is planning or will be supporting on campus and around the Chicagoland area.  

Support Our Club
The DMRC is raising funds through sale of its exclusive DMRC Tee and Polo style shirts. The shirts have been a great way for the group to spread club awareness and build espirit de corps amongst our student veterans. Please contact Scott Stratton at sstratton@devry.edu to purchase a shirt. All of the proceeds will go directly to our club.
