KSU at Trumbull Opens Military, Veterans Resource Center

WARREN, Ohio – At Ease, a Military & Veteran Resource Center, is now open at Kent State University at Trumbull.

The center offers military and veteran students a place to access information on the G.I. Bill, campus mental health counseling, community relations, financial aid and other resources.

“We wanted to create a space for our military and veteran students,” said Lori Singer-Bare, a lecturer for Criminology and Justice Studies and an instructor at the Peace Officer Training Academy. “We are so grateful to our military and veteran students, staff and faculty. This is another way we can thank and honor those who are serving or have served this great nation.”

Singer-Bare served for more than 13 years in the U.S. Army as a military police officer, drill sergeant, platoon sergeant and operations sergeant.

The vision for the resource center came from Singer-Bare, as well as faculty and staff members Maribeth Eckenrode, Regional Campus Financial Aid representative; Barb Ozimek, counseling specialist and adjunct faculty; and Karen Ronga, Gelbke Library director.
