NORMAL, Ill. -- Illinois State University student veterans now have a new place where they can get a little help.

On Friday, the school dedicated its new Veteran's Study Center.

The center was designed to give veteran and active duty students a place to meet-up, study, and get assistance.

One student veteran say the center will give veterans another avenue to succeed.

"Some veterans do great by themselves but others, having that camaraderie, that shared experience you get from the military service, this will provide a place where you can get that. Make new friends, you know where you can share your past experiences and you're making new ones here," U.S. Navy veteran Matthew Schumacher.

ISU has 400 and 500 student veterans enrolled each year, and has been named as a "Military Friendly School" by G.I. Jobs magazine.
