Week of Virtual Events to Celebrate, Honor Military-Connected Population

USD current and alumni for Veterans Day 2019 celebrationMembers of USD's Miltary-connected student population and alumni gathered on campus in November 2019. The 2020 Veterans Day celebration involves a week of virtual events.

The University of San Diego typically hosts an in-person ceremony to recognize and honor our entire military-connected community — active duty, veterans, retired, family members — on campus when Veterans Day occurs on Nov. 11.

However, due to present COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place, the USD Military and Veterans Program, in conjunction with Associated Student Government and other campus entities, will celebrate and honor our Toreros with virtual events this entire week, Nov. 9-13.

“This week, we recognize the service of our military veterans across campus. Thank you all for your service to the country and for continuing to serve in your own unique ways as Changemakers,” said Amanda Etter, director of USD’s MVP and a retired U.S. Marine veteran.
