Military Appreciation Month: Broadview University Salutes the Members of the Military
Published on May 8, 2014 by Bob Trewartha
May is national Military appreciation month, and here at Broadview University, we want to give a big thank you for all the members of the military for their service for all of us and our country. This great country of ours is only as strong as its freedoms, which are upheld by those who give service to protect them. We honor our veterans, service members and families of military personnel not only in May, but Broadview honors them every day.
It is part of the culture at Broadview to provide service to our community and a big part of that community are our military personnel. Broadview has started a memorial rock table in the lobby of our Orem campus.The Memorial Rock is a silent way to remember a veteran during Military Appreciation Month. Stop by the front desk and write a message with permanent marker on one of the rocks. At the end of the month we’ll designate a special spot outside to house our Memorial Rock garden.
Throughout the month we will have several events honoring our military students and staff, their spouses, and families. Below are some important dates to remember in May:
- Military Spouse Day – May 9th
- Armed Forces Day – May 17th
- Maritime Day – May 22nd
- Memorial Day – May 26th
Military Advanced Education (MAE) awarded Broadview University the designation of a Top Military-Friendly University in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities. “We are honored to accept this award from Military Advanced Education. We know how important education opportunities are to our military, and we strive to provide the tools they need to succeed,” said Mike Hughes, director of Military Student Services at Broadview University
Broadview University respects the service and sacrifices of service members and the families who support them. As a military-friendly school, we understand the unique challenges that these students face when trying to earn college degrees. Broadview’s military student services staff provide assistance to active-duty, reserve and retired military personnel and their family members in their pursuit of higher education.
