About the Veteran's Oasis
NVCC opened the Veterans’ Oasis on May 5, 2009 to welcome and serve current and future veterans. The space was a collaboration between the Office of the Governor, the Connecticut Veterans Association, the Chancellors of the State’s public colleges and universities, and NVCC President Daisy Cocco DeFilippis. On February 10, 2011, Naugatuck Valley Community College hosted an Open House to celebrate the renovation and grand opening of the Veterans’ Oasis. This renovation was completed through the generosity of Pilgrim Furniture, Walmart and numerous local companies who provided their goods and services.
