Luke Joseph Ryan Veterans Center

The Luke Joseph Ryan Veterans Center is located in room 120 of the Katharine L. Boyd Library. This out-of-the-way area is a place for socializing and studying for veteran students, dependents, and spouses. The center is outfitted with a small kitchen area that includes a coffee bar and water filling station, a lounge area with a TV, and comfortable tables and chairs for studying.

The SCC Veterans Affairs staff is available to assist students cut through the red tape of financial aid and military education benefits. Their offices are located in the Center.

The Center is dedicated to Luke Joseph Ryan’s memory, a navy serviceman whose life and military career ended much too soon. The Ryan family has a long tradition of military service representative of all five branches of the armed forces. Luke’s father, Luke Patrick Ryan, was a Navy SEAL. His grandfather, Colonel Robert J. Ryan, MD, was an Army surgeon who served in the Marine Corps. All four of Luke’s uncles proudly served active duty in the US military.
