As a thank you to the brave men and women who proudly serve our country, Arizona State University is hosting a weeklong Salute to Service, in honor of Veterans Day, Nov. 9-16, on all ASU campuses.

Salute to Service is just one of many events that take place throughout the year so that the ASU community can honor U.S. servicemen and women.

ASU has made a strong commitment to veteran success in education. For the fifth consecutive year, ASU was named a Military Friendly School for 2014 by G.I. Jobs magazine. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are leaders in providing educational support benefits and paths to success for military veterans.

Together with the Pat Tillman Veterans Center, Arizona State University works hard to ensure student veterans receive the proper support they need to transition into a university atmosphere and civilian life.
