Veterans Alumni Chapter
UNM honors its military past and present
The University of New Mexico has a long history with the U.S. military — its active members and Veterans. Lobos have served in every major conflict and war. The University itself has played a role in supporting our service members. The campus at times was home to the cavalry and their horses as well as provided opportunities for our naval soldiers to work in steam plants. The support for Veterans is equally a priority as UNM is honored to be recognized nationally as one of the top Military Friendly Institutions.
We are organizing and planning for chapter success – and are looking for volunteers interested in getting involved at the organization level.

Lazo overcomes wounds of war to succeed
Army veteran credits UNM Veterans Resource Center to help finish education
Andres Lazo is a proud graduate of The University of New Mexico. As an Army veteran who suffered physical and mental wounds while serving in Iraq, he has a reason to be proud that he earned a bachelor's in business administration from the Anderson School of Management in 2013. He was immediately accepted into the master's in public administration program at Syracuse University and completed that degree in May. [ more ]
