As Veteran’s Day has come and gone, it is important to reflect on why a valiant day is so important, the history behind the holiday, and how institutes are working to validate these heroes.
At Oregon State University we strive to offer specialized resources to our Veterans that not only help prepare them for a smooth transition into an undergraduate career, but to provide the guidance needed to put their degree to good use. A few popular resources available to our Veterans include: The OSU Veterans Advisory Committee, OSU Veterans Workgroup, Transitioning Assistance, and many other departments on campus with the goal of meeting the needs of Veterans and their families.

This week in particular we were proud to offer a variety of events showcasing our support for those who have served. I encourage everyone to participate in one of the many on campus events this week in honor of the Veterans in our community. A couple of events can be found below:
