New campus partnerships to honor veterans

Submitted by Ennis Rios


To celebrate Veterans Day on Nov. 11, the K-State Military Affiliated Resource Center has partnered with the Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Zeta Tau Alpha Greek houses to plant American flags on the Hale Library lawn. The 700 flags represent the more than 700 student veterans currently enrolled at Kansas State University, which includes the Manhattan, Salina, Olathe and Global campuses.

To honor those who served the United States in military service, Joyce and Joe's Cornerstone Café in Hale Library will be offering a free cup of drip coffee to student veterans from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Veterans Day. On the same day, Union Station by JP's in the K-State Student Union will be offering student veterans a free entrée from a select menu. Additionally, Lacy's Fresh Fare and Catering is hosting a Veterans Day breakfast at Justin Hall.

If you have ideas for supporting or are interested in partnering with the Military Affiliated Resource Center to support our roughly 1,700 military-affiliated students, contact the center's coordinator at ennisrios@k-state.edu
