BW 2011 Veterans Day flag raising

Baldwin Wallace Salutes Those Who Served

As Veterans Day approaches, BW once again holds a celebration honoring those who have served in the United States Military.

On November 8 and 9, Baldwin Wallace University will be hosting its third annual Veterans Day Celebration. What began as a small breakfast and career program three years ago has quickly developed into a two-day celebration of students, faculty, staff and other members of the BW Community who have served our country.

Baldwin Wallace has a history of serving the educational needs of veterans and as been named a Military Friendly School for 2013 by G.I. Jobs Magazine. Enrolling more than 100 veterans in undergraduate and graduate programs, BW has been recognized for the exceptional programs and services provided for veteran students both returning from active duty and those already immersed in civilian life.

2012 Event Schedule

This year’s event will kick off with a display of photo albums, uniforms, insignia, medals and more on display in the Grindstone Room of Strosacker Hall on November 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

On November 9 events will begin with a flag raising ceremony in front of Heritage Hall at 7:45 a.m. featuring the Men’s Ensemble Mr. Sun’s Echo singing our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," Doug Young performing “Reveille” and an invitation-only breakfast to follow. The displays will once again be open to the public in the Grindstone Room from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
