Niagara University will celebrate its student-veterans throughout this week, with a different branch of the military being recognized each day. Student-veterans will man displays on the Gallagher Center’s lower level, which Healy said is a way to help students, faculty and staff understand what it meant for these men and women to serve our nation.
• Coast Guard – Tuesday
• Air Force — Wednesday
• Marines – Thursday
• Army – Friday
In addition, on Friday, the Niagara University Purple Eagles will hold its annual Military Appreciation Day at Dwyer Arena as the NU men’s hockey team takes on Army. Those who have served in the armed forces will be recognized during the game.
Among the numerous opportunities Niagara offers student-veterans are four-week online courses through the General Education Mobile (GEM) program, which are designed specifically for military members. Complete information on the program can be found at www.niagara.edu/gem.
