Fox Valley Technical College has a long history of providing education and training to veterans, service members and qualifying family members. It is a privilege to serve those who have served our country. Each year, we process about $1 million in education benefits for our veteran students who answered the call to serve our country before starting their academic journey.

In honor of Veterans Week, the FVTC Veterans Resource Center (Room E119, Appleton Campus) is hosting the following events. All events are free for veterans. 

All Week - Monday through Friday

  • Free snacks - chips, popcorn, candy, soda, water, energy drinks, and coffee
  • Daily drawing for student veterans where you could win one of four Yeti Ramblers or a Solo-Stove Tabletop Fire Pit
  • Penny wars between military branches. All donated money will go to purchase food for the FVTC Food Pantry. 

Wednesday, Nov. 9

  • Free car wash for veterans, 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m. - The FVTC Auto Body Club wants to thank veterans for their service to our country! Open to all eligible veterans. To obtain your car wash voucher, please stop by the FVTC Veterans Resource Center, Room E119, Appleton Campus. Then simply bring your vehicle over to the Collision & Repair Center and drop your keys off in room T108.
