Abstract

The Brookings Veterans Society consisted of discharged and separated personnel of the United States Armed Forces that were registered as students at South Dakota State University. This collection is composed of correspondence, accounting reports, constitution and by-laws, forms, membership and project data, and newsletters.

Historical Note

The Brookings Veterans Society consisted of discharged and separated personnel of the United States Armed Forces that were registered as students at South Dakota State University. In the preamble to their constitution it is stated that they recognized their status as students, and in forming an organization, believed that their first responsibility was to further the interest, and welfare of the State University Student body. They also believed that their members had a common bond of experience and a slightly different viewpoint and interest in student activities and government.

Their purpose as stated in the constitution was to 1.) Uphold the South Dakota State University Student code and the educational mission of the institution. 2.) To provide a friendly atmosphere, to help, aid and assist new veteran students at State University. 3.) To present to the Veterans information and provide the opportunity for discussion of legislation of direct concern, of topics of general interest, and of vital political issue involving the University, the State, the Nations, and the World. 4.) To act in the general interest of Veterans and other students on campus issues. 5.) To attempt to improve classroom and living facilities at State University. 6.) To encourage Veterans to attend, remain in, or return to South Dakota State University.
