A week of virtual events to celebrate and honor the population connected to the military

Members of the population of students and alumni connected to the USD military gathered on campus in November 2019. The celebration Veterans Day 2020 includes a week of virtual events.

The University of San Diego typically hosts an in-person ceremony to recognize and honor our entire military-related community – active duty, veterans, retirees, family members – on campus when the Veterans Day on November 11.

However, due to the current COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place, the USD Military and Veterans Program, along with the Associated Student Government and other campus entities, will celebrate and honor our Bullfighters with virtual events throughout the week, November 9-13.

“This week, we recognize the service of our military veterans across campus. Thank you all for your service to the country and for continuing to serve in your own unique way as Changemakers, "said Amanda Etter, USD MVP Director and Retired US Navy Veteran.
