Event scheduled to connect students with veterans 

On Monday, Nov. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m., Grand Valley State University Housing is partnering with the GVSU Veterans Affairs to hold an events called “Get Informed, Grow Passion and Give Thanks.” 

The event, which is being held at North C Living Center, will give students the opportunity to spend time with volunteer veterans and learn about how the GVSU community can better assist veterans in their transition from service. 

Knowledge on how to interact and treat veterans is often overlooked, but this event aims to confront that ignorance and mistreatment. Students who attend the event will gain a better understanding of the treatment of veterans, and will also be encouraged to write letters to those currently serving or who have served.
