Event: 2nd Annual Calling Home Ceremony

STUDENT VETERAN LIFE

Calling home the spirits of University of Washington student, staff, faculty, and alumni veterans of all generations.

There are over 1,800 current student veterans across our three campuses who currently call the University of Washington home, in addition to the countless alumni who have served.  For many who came to UW after military service, campus was not always a welcoming place to be a veteran.
