The College of Saint Rose dedicated its new Veteran Residence on October 18.
The Veteran Residence, a Victorian-style house at 971 Madison Avenue, has six large bedrooms and 2 ½ bathrooms, as well as a shared kitchen, living room, and laundry facilities.
The house is for both men and women, and, unlike other residence halls at Saint Rose, there is no resident assistant (RA). Veteran students also are able to live in the house all 12 months of the year, rather than having to leave for the summer.
The renovation of the residence hall, now known as the Veteran Residence, was possible thanks to the generosity of the Massry Family, which includes Saint Rose Board of Trustees Vice Chair I. Norman Massry and Trustee Julie Massry Knox G’04, and the support of Tri City Rentals. Last year, the Massry Family also gave Saint Rose a $100,000 gift to support scholarships for veterans whose education at Saint Rose was not fully funded by their military benefits. Additional donors later matched their gift.
