The Office of Veterans Affairs


Veterans Day 2014
On Tuesday, November 11th, student-veterans, students, faculty, staff and the community gathered to honor Veterans Day at Western Connecticut State University. Over 200 were in attendance, including Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and President Schmotter. Every year, WCSU pauses to remember and reflect those who have served and currently are serving - please take the time to review the photos from the event!

The scholarship will be awarded to a Western Connecticut State University student-veteran who meets the following criteria: has served or is currently serving under honorable conditions; has a cumulative GPA of 2.5; has a financial need and displays ‘Americanism’ in everything he/she does. Please complete the application and return to the Office of Veterans Affairs by 21 October 2014.
