Military Students & Veterans Center - web

Doug Hoenig, Black Hawk College construction projects manager, catches up on some work in the college’s Veterans Resource Center at the Quad-Cities Campus. Hoenig is a retired lieutenant colonel who did four combat tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Black Hawk College opened a Veterans Resource Center at the Quad-Cities Campus in February 2014.

The center provides a place for veterans and active duty military students and employees to relax, network, study and find resources to help them transition into college and careers.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Building 4, Room 117.

It offers a breakroom with a study table, couches, television, microwave, refrigerator and coffee pots; an office staffed with veterans and a coordinator to answer questions and make referrals; three computers and a printer to help with homework; and a quiet room for relaxing, counseling, small meetings or studying.

All furnishings in the Veterans Resource Center were donated or purchased with donations from community members, businesses and Black Hawk College employees.

For questions or a personal tour, contact Marceia Duhm, coordinator of career and veterans services, at 309-796-5838 or 309-796-5191 or
