Chancellor Richard Wells and other top University of Wisconsin Oshkosh administrators will help the UW Oshkosh Veterans Support Group honor veterans Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day.
Staff and student veterans will be in the Reeve Union concourse from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will hand out flags, pins and popcorn.
The Veteran’s Support Group is comprised of the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center, Counseling Center, Dean of Students, Center for New Learning, Admissions Office and Adult Nontraditional Student Resource Office. The group is chaired by the Registrar’s Office.
“The Veteran’s Support Group exists to coordinate services for student veterans on campus and in the classroom,” said Beth Mueller, a veteran’s certifying official and the University’s Veterans Resource Center coordinator.
UW Oshkosh has nearly 500 student veterans and was recently ranked first in the state and 36th in the nation for its programs, policies and resources for veterans.
