New and returning Middle Tennessee State University student veterans and their families are welcome to attend a “newcomers briefing” hosted by the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center.
The event, which is free and catered by Aramark Dining Services, will be held starting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12, in the Tom H. Jackson Building’s Cantrell Hall, 628 Alma Mater Drive.
Organizers request new and returning student veterans and their families make their reservation by emailing Elizabeth Wilburn at Elizabeth.Wilburn@mtsu.edu.
“We are excited to welcome a new group of military-connected students to MTSU,” said Hilary Miller, center director. “While the Newcomers Briefing is always a valuable way to begin the semester, I think it is particularly important for the Spring term.
“Starting a new school in January can be challenging; attending the Newcomers Briefing is great way to ensure that you are squared away and ready for the academic mission that lays ahead. Family and Friends are welcome.”
Miller and her staff are targeting new-to-MTSU student veterans and family members, but it is open to all student veterans and their families, she said.
Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, will speak during the event.
MTSU’s spring semester begins Tuesday, Jan. 17.
