The Hilltop Student Veterans Association is a service organization whose primary purpose is to serve the needs of the St. Edward's University veterans as well as those in the greater community.
The campus of St. Edward’s University is affectionately called the “hilltop” in tribute to the school’s mascot, a ram named Topper. As such, many organizations assume the “hilltop” moniker which is also part of the military veteran affiliated group whose student body comprises the Hilltop Student Veterans Association.
The Hilltop Student Veterans Association, comprised of students with military service background, as a significant part of St. Edward’s University, found unity and voice as well as community and service through the student organization.
