CUW Veterans Week

Join CUW Veterans Services all week in honoring our veteran students at CUW, as well as all who have served to help keep our country free and safe!

Considering all they have done to serve our country, helping keep us all safe and free, one day a year feels insufficient for honoring U.S. military veterans.

“Even though Veterans Day is recognized for one day, we do so for a week here at CUW,” explained Kari Metts, CUW’s Veterans Outreach Coordinator. “And for us in Concordia’s Veteran Services department, it is a daily service that we provide to our student-veterans and veterans in general, on and off campus. It’s more than a duty—it’s an honor. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

So please us in celebrating Veterans Week at CUW, honoring our veteran students and all who have served to help defend our freedoms!
