One Connecticut senator wants to learn about what student veterans need.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal said he plans to meet with them at Northwest Connecticut Community College in Winsted to discuss their priorities and learn about support and resources available to them on campus.

The meeting will happen at the campus veterans' OASIS, or Operation Academic Support for Incoming Service Members.

OASIS is a drop-in center that serves as an informal gathering place for student veterans where they can access resources and support.

Blumenthal, a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, said every school in the Connecticut State Collages and Universities System has an OASIS center.

The meeting is set for 11 a.m. at the Robert C. White Building on Park Place East.
