The proceeds from Rockin’ Fest will go towards the Student Veterans Emergency Relief Program.

In addition to Rockin’ Fest featuring several bands, there will also be food, Veterans’ service organizations, and vendors present at the event to round out the day.

Student Veterans receive college tuition and a monthly housing stipend under the Post 9/11 GI Bill, but that money stops coming during winter and summer breaks when veterans are not in class, leaving students financially strapped.

The Student Veterans Emergency Relief Program will be available for student veterans who need assistance with expenses such as paying rent or an electric bill, or purchasing food and gas during times when class is not in session. A committee will review the request for assistance and quickly evaluate the situation so a rapid resolution can be achieved. The fund is a vehicle to get them through the period so they can concentrate on their studies. If the student veteran is struggling with classes, the fund can also be used for specialized tutoring.
