Eye on UMSL: A Triton welcome
With a clink of the coffee cup, Louie the Triton officially welcomes Joshua Evans to his new role as coordinator and VA certifying official of the University of Missouri–St. Louis Veteran’s Center. Evans helps oversee services for military-connected students, including admissions support, GI bill advising and certification, academic support and networking opportunities while providing a supportive and relaxing environment for students to hang out or study in the student lounge over a pot of coffee.
He’s more than familiar with the needs of veterans and their families having utilized the Veteran’s Center services and helped others as a student worker while working toward his BS in psychology and minor in veteran’s studies, which he earned in 2019. Previously, Evans served four years active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps as a motor vehicle operator and six years in the U.S. Air Force Reserves as a mental health technician.
