The event is free. Organizers request new and returning student veterans and their families make their reservation by emailing Elizabeth Wilburn at Elizabeth.Wilburn@mtsu.edu.

“The briefing is an orientation customized for our military-connected students and their families. It will focus on campus resources,” said Hilary Miller, center director.

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.

“Our objective is to make them aware of on-campus contacts for all offices that can help them be successful,” Miller said. “We want them to know the center’s staff, be connected to us and meet and know other student veterans.”

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, will speak during the event.

Dress is casual. Dinner featuring slow-roasted turkey breast, vegetable, salad and more will be provided.

MTSU has more than 300 combined undergraduate and graduate programs.
