Veterans Open House designed to showcase educational, career resources

Ohio University-Chillicothe, in conjunction with Veterans Services offices and other area career and social services agencies, will host an open house for military veterans beginning at 1 p.m. on Flag Day, June 14. The purpose of the open house is to help make veterans aware of the educational opportunities, career services and veteran support services that are available in the region.

The event will be held in the Stevenson Center Learning Commons and will include representatives of OU-C and organizations such as the Veteran Services offices of Fayette, Jackson, Pickaway, Pike and Ross counties; Disabled American Veterans; JOBS One-Stop; and the Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce.

The schedule includes:

• 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Campus Tours
• 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Information Tables
• 2:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Application Information Session
• 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Financial Aid Workshop

For information or to register for the event, contact OU-C Coordinator of Student Enrollment Jaime Lowe at (740) 774-7241 or lowej@ohio.edu.

“We are grateful for the service military veterans have made and understand the skills they bring to the classroom and workplace,” OU-C Dean Martin Tuck said. “This event is designed to offer an opportunity for veterans to have convenient access to the resources that are available as they make this transition. This event underscores the Chillicothe Campus’ core values. OU-C was founded in 1946, largely to meet the needs of veterans returning from World War II and to help them utilize the GI Bill to pursue the American dream they risked their lives to protect. That same spirit continues today and is captured in this event.”
