Thank you for supporting our student veterans!

February 18, 2020

We’ve been honored and humbled by the outpouring of care and support you have given our University of Mississippi student veterans since we launched our “Welcome Home” fundraising campaign on Veteran’s Day.

 

Thanks to you, we exceeded our goal with two weeks left in the campaign. We deeply appreciate your generosity because we still have much to accomplish to prepare the George Street House to be our new headquarters. If you haven't given yet, there's still time!

 

If you've ever had to write your blood type on your boots to go to work every day, you shouldn't have to wonder where you can go on campus to get the services you need. Thanks to your support, our students will get everything they need under one roof.  

 

We’re determined to make Ole Miss a leader when it comes to welcoming our military-affiliated students. Your generosity has encouraged us as we take this big step forward.
