Atlantic Cape Opens Veterans Lounge at Cape May County Campus

June 1, 2017

As part of its efforts to better serve area veterans, Atlantic Cape Community College has opened a new lounge and will offer TeleHealth services at the Cape May County Campus, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House.

The veterans lounge will serve as a meeting place for current Atlantic Cape veteran students to convene, relax and get to know one another. In the lounge, there are couches, a computer and internet access, relevant veteran community resources and a television.

The veterans lounge at the Cape May County Campus is the first of three lounges for the college. Spaces are identified for similar lounges at the Atlantic City Campus and in the new Student Center under construction at the Mays Landing Campus.

The college will also provide veterans with the ability to connect to health providers to address any health-related matters virtually through TeleHealth in the future. TeleHealth allows an individual to privately speak to a health professional about their benefits without having to travel far. All three Atlantic Cape campuses have designated private rooms for this service.

The Cape May County Campus lounge officially opened April 29 during a veterans’ clinic hosted by the Veterans Administration and attended by 250 people.

Veterans interested in learning more about Atlantic Cape’s services or registering should contact Ellen Splaver at esplaver@atlantic.edu.
