When does the university observe Veterans Day?
Kent State University will hold its annual Veterans Day program on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. on Risman Plaza. The outdoor program will include a flag-raising ceremony conducted by a joint color guard from the Army and Air Force ROTC programs and remarks from President Lester A. Lefton.
There also will be remarks from Eric Mansfield, Kent State’s executive director for university media relations. Mansfield is retired from the Ohio Army National Guard and served in Iraq and Kuwait. A reception in the Kiva lobby will follow the brief program.
The university community is invited to attend and show appreciation for those who have served or are currently serving in a branch of the military. A special invitation is extended to those who are veterans, active service members or who have family members in the military.
The university will officially observe the Veterans Day holiday on Monday, Nov. 12. There will be no classes, and offices will be closed on that day.
