‌‌During the week of Veterans Day, Veteran Programs collaborates with various departments and organizations to create a campus awareness of our faculty/staff/student veteran population at LMU through educational programming‌. In 2009, the Student Veterans Organization was created to not only serve veterans and veteran dependents but to also educate the LMU campus about veteran issues. Thus, Veterans Appreciation Week was born and has continued to be a part of our commitment to creating an awareness of our LMU student, staff, faculty and alumni veterans within our LMU community. 

Join us for these 2016 Veterans Appreciation Week events!


Weeklong Events

Veteran Library Exhibit

William H. Hannon Library- First Floor

In honor and recognition of the United Stated Armed Forces, Veteran Programs will celebrate the men and women who have served and protected our country. The exhibit, which will be on the library's first floor, will include biographies on LMU's very own student veterans, military memorabilia, keepsakes and articles of military life.


Show your appreciation by posting a picture of yourself with a Happy Veterans Day sign. Then upload your picture to Facebook or Instagram and hashtag #HappyVeteransDay while sharing or tagging your photo to the LMU Veteran Programs Facebook page. If you know a veteran, don't forget to tag them too!
