With Veterans Day on the horizon (Nov. 11), Methodist University will have an entire week of remembering and thanking the veterans who have selflessly served our country.
Starting Nov. 6, MU’s Military and Veterans Appreciation Week includes a variety of events on campus, including a recognition service, wreath laying, fundraiser, and much more.
“At MU, we are proud of all veterans who have served our country” said Randy Smith, MU’s director of Veteran Services. “We hope this week’s events not only encourage the entire MU campus to take the time to honor and remember our heroes, but also helps our veterans feel valued and appreciated.”
Regularly selected as a “Best for Vets” college by the Military Times, Methodist University offers a caring Veteran Services staff while providing affordable on-campus programs and fully online degrees to veterans, their spouses and children, and active-duty service members. MU’s generous transfer credit policy, a suite of career-focused programs, and a dedication to flexibility make it easy to get started and stay committed to earning a degree.
