Tony Orlando sang about them, but at St Cloud State, yellow ribbons are more than just symbolic - they encompass what the university deeply believes and exhibits in its day-to-day existence

The campus was honored recently with a state designation titled "Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Campus"
The award was given to St Cloud State because of its commitment to providing student veterans and their families with a high quality and caring learning environment, said John M Eggers, director of Counseling and Psychological Services and one of the people responsible for furthering that goal on campus

Much of what the committee that made the designation was looking for "was already being done at St Cloud State," Eggers said But more importantly, by putting a detailed plan on paper furthers the university's commitment for growth

"My goal is to make sure that there is coordination and support for this," Eggers said, adding that St Cloud State was the only university in the MnSCU system to be honored with the award

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon connects service members and their families with community support, training, services and resources

Eggers said that the support for veterans and their families starts at St Cloud State's President's Office and filters its way down throughout the leadership
