On the top floor of Lowell Heiny Hall at Colorado Mesa University, the Student Veteran Services office strives to assist former military members throughout their college careers. Cody Kem, who served in the Navy from 2009 to 2014, works at Student Veteran Services and uses his own military experience to be a resource for other CMU students.
Kem currently works as a PAVE (Peer Advisors for Veteran Education) team leader: he helps incoming veteran students navigate the transition into college, including financial processes and readjusting to a different pace.
