A month of honor, remembrance, awareness and support
Each November, the University of Central Florida honors and remembers our nation’s veterans with events throughout the month. The events provide the Central Florida community with opportunities to hear stories shared by veterans, learn about resources and programs available, and support local veterans’ causes.
Ranked as one of the nation’s best universities for veterans and “Military Friendly” by G.I. Jobs magazine, UCF also provides student veterans with dedicated resources to aid them on their path to graduation.
Read on for Veterans Month activities coordinated by the UCF History department and the Office of Military and Veteran Student Success, in partnership with units across the university and community.
