The University at Buffalo invites veterans and active duty or reserve members of the U.S. armed forces to attend a university-wide Military Veteran Preview Day on Nov. 14 in the Center for the Arts on UB’s North Campus.
UB is ranked No. 23 among national universities in the U.S. News and World Report’s listing of “Best Colleges for Veterans.” The ranking evaluates schools that participate in federal initiatives to help veterans and active service members apply, pay for and complete their degrees.
“The purpose of the day is to expose veterans to the many undergraduate and graduate and professional programs here at UB and to provide a glimpse into the many support services available to them,” says Daniel Ryan, event co-organizer and director of UB’s Off-Campus Student Services and Veteran Services.
A full agenda is available on UB’s Military Preview Day website. Registration is required for the free event.
The day’s keynote speaker will be Patrick J. Long, a U.S. Navy officer who earned a law degree at UB in 2000, practiced law at Hodgson Russ in Buffalo and is now teaching legal writing, analysis and research in the UB Law School.
