We invite you to attend our Military and Veteran Services Orientation on Thursday and Friday, August 15-16, 2019. This will be an opportunity to receive military- and veteran-specific information in addition to your respective school’s orientation, and to connect with other military-connected students and key campus and community resources.

This orientation is designed for our student veterans, service members and their spouses and partners, but is open to all military-connected students, including dependent children, caregivers, survivors and ROTC cadets. We recognize this orientation may conflict with other school orientations and we can meet with you individually upon request. 

We request RSVPs using the form below.
