William Jessup University holding Veterans Day ceremony; will unveil new Veterans Resource Center

ROCKLIN, Calif. – The William Jessup University Public Policy and Business Departments, in cooperation with the CSU-Sacramento Air Force ROTC and the WJU Veterans Club, will host the university’s seventh annual Veterans Day Celebration on Wednesday, November 11.

The annual event begins at 7:15 a.m. at the flagpole, located in front of the growing campus. The event also announces a new Veterans Resource Center (VRC) now available to William Jessup students and slated to open to the public next year.

“Although the VRC is a work in progress, we want the center to ultimately be a premier resource that helps other vets with the transition from the battlefield to the classroom,” said Roy T. Davis, Jessup’s Veterans Club President.
