Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great summer vacation either at home or abroad!  To kick off the start of the 2015 - 2016 school year we got two events coming up!  

First, we got the OPERS Fall Festival tomorrow (22 Sep 15) from 1800 to 2100.  If you're a new student veteran looking to get more information about us or just to meet new people and fellow student veterans, come check us out!  If you're a returning student veteran, stop by and hang out!  We'll be at booth A9 near the front of OPERS as you come in from Cowell - Stevenson.  Here is the map for the Fall Fesitival.  

Second, on the following day (23 Sep 15) from 1500 to 1800 .  We have our third annual Veterans Meet and Greet!  Come by and meet the staff and students that support the UCSC VETS program and enjoy the food.  Attached is the flyer below with more details!


Again, welcome to our new student veterans and welcome back to our returning ones!
