Veterans Network (VetNet) is a uniquely defined organization on campus. We are a diverse group of men and women with differences in college majors, athletic/academic abilities, socio-cultural backgrounds and ...wisdom. Our membership represents generations, both military and non-military affiliated, as far back as the WWII era to as recent as the latest high school graduate. Though regardless of all our differences as students at Cal State Long Beach, we all share the common bond of knowing selfless sacrifice for a nation.

In addition to being a network of Veterans on campus, Veterans Network includes relationships established with external individuals and organizations. We continually strive to build strong ties with local employers, professional organizations, other Veterans groups and any individual(s) who consider themselves to be supporters of our cause. This allows our school club to produce multi-faceted activities that can mutually benefit our entire network.

Whether you are a Veteran, Dependent or simply a Veteran Supporter, we welcome you to Join Us as a student member, organization or individual supporter. We have numerous officer positions to fill that will complement many majors and/or professions. Depending upon current needs, we may even create positions specifically tailored to your expertise
