Darton State adds military lounge

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Darton State College has opened their new military lounge.

The lounge was funded by a community project that worked with Ashley furniture.

It is a space specifically for active duty service members, veterans, reservists, National Guard, and their dependents to connect with others like themselves, study, and relax.

“We had a student come in and say that he didn't know any other veterans on campus so that kinda birth the idea of this lounge being created just so they know they will be able to know students they pass on the sidewalk each and every day many of them are veteran students,” said Stefanie Raulerson, Director or Military and Adult Education.

They hope this will increase retention at the school but also enhance their experience at Darton.
