CertainTeed 5-Star Green and Master Shingle Applicator contractor, RJK Construction Co., of Willoughby, Ohio, installs Winterguard® and DiamondDeck™ roofing underlayment as well as CertaWrap™, CertaTape™ and CertaFlash™ housewrap products in the webisode to create a water- and wind-tight barrier to protect the century-old home's original structure.

Home Built by Stevens Institute of Technology Students will Support Veterans in their Transition to Academic Success at California State University San Marcos Sep 22, 2014 12:15PM

San Marcos, California (PRWEB) September 22, 2014

Veterans Center Ribbon Cutting at Cal State San Marcos

New building built by Stevens Institute of Technology students will support veterans in their transition to academic success

WHAT:

California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) is celebrating its newly opened Veterans Center with an official ribbon cutting ceremony. The new 1,000-square-foot energy-efficient building was donated by Stevens Institute of Technology students who designed and built it for the U.S. Department of Energy's 2013 Solar Decathlon.

WHO:

Dr. Timothy P. White, Chancellor, The California State University
Dr. Karen Haynes, President, California State University San Marcos
Dr. Michael Bruno, Dean, Stevens Institute of Technology
Jon Keith Barnes, CSUSM Student Veteran
Other guests include elected officials, regional military leadership, student veterans and university faculty and staff.

WHEN:

Tuesday, Sept. 23, 12:00 PM

WHERE:

California State University San Marcos, 333 S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd., San Marcos
The Veterans Center is located adjacent to Markstein Hall, behind Science Hall I.
Recommended media parking is Lot H, located off of Palm Canyon Dr.

WHY:
CSUSM, located close to Camp Pendleton and several other military installations, has the highest percentage of student veterans per capita of any California State University (CSU) campus. About 11 percent of Cal State San Marcos students are veterans, service members, reservists or dependents/spouses, and that number is expected to grow as more military personnel retire or discharge and seek opportunities in the civilian world.

The new CSUSM Veterans Center replaces a smaller facility which opened in Craven Hall in 2008. Featuring an office, conference room, kitchen, lounge and event space, the Center will be a place where military-affiliated students can receive support in achieving their academic and career goals with services tailored to their unique needs. Staff will assist students to navigate the admissions process, access their GI benefits, register for courses, access campus resources and get involved in leadership and social activities.

In addition to serving veterans, the Center will also be an excellent vehicle for advancing knowledge of energy use patterns and weather and temperature influences to maximize energy-efficiency. CSUSM plans to engage its science and technology students in data monitoring, collection and analysis, working with their Stevens counterparts to study how technology, design and engineering can drive sustainability.
