This Veterans Day, the South University community extends our gratitude and appreciation to everyone who has been a member of the U.S. military—including our own military students, faculty and staff—for their bravery and service. We honor your courage, patriotism and the sacrifices you’ve made for our country.
First recognized in 1919 and legally designated as a U.S. holiday in 1938, November 11 was originally known as Armistice Day to honor veterans of World War I. In 1954, new legislation officially changed the name of the holiday to Veterans Day and today, the day honors American veterans of all wars.
Not just today, but every day, our staff and faculty members strive to support those affiliated with the military through flexible degree programs, scholarship opportunities, and policies that can allow military experience to count as college credit. Last month, South University was honored by being named a 2015 Military Friendly® School by GI Jobs Magazine. We are and will continue to be dedicated to supporting military-affiliated students who wish to advance their education and enhance their professional skills and knowledge.
At South University, Online Programs, military students are encouraged to join our chapter of the Student Veterans of America in Connections (under the Organizations tab), a network where peers can provide academic and personal support, share helpful information, and discuss a wide range of topics and common interests. We also encourage every South University military student to see what resources and organizations are available at the campus or via the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Thank you again for all that you have done for this country!
