New, returning MTSU student veterans  invited to Aug. 22 newcomers briefing

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- New and returning MTSU student veterans and their families are welcome to attend a "newcomers briefing" hosted by the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center.

The event will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, in the Tom H. Jackson Building, 628 Alma Mater Drive.

The event is free. Organizers request new and returning student veterans and their families make their reservation by emailing Elizabeth Wilburn at Elizabeth.Wilburn@mtsu.edu.

"The briefing is an orientation customized for our military-connected students and their families. It will focus on campus resources," said Hilary Miller, center director.

Miller and her staff are targeting new-to-MTSU student veterans and family members, but it is open to all student veterans and their families, she said.

"Our objective is to make them aware of on-campus contacts for all offices that can help them be successful," Miller said. "We want them to know the center's staff, be connected to us and meet and know other student veterans."

Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives and a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, will speak during the event.

Dress is casual. A free barbecue dinner will be provided.
