Veteran Events

Veteran and Family Events

The Military Education Support Office (MESO) hosts a variety of events throughout the year to connect and support our student veterans and their families to various MATC resources. These events also provide an opportunity to meet the MESO staff, meet other fellow student veterans, and obtain information. Some of these events also allow student veterans to sign-up early for classes, programs and other initiatives, all of which are focused on providing the best possible service to our MATC student veterans and their families. Many of these annual events are also reoccurring throughout the school year, so if you miss one event, the dates will provide a general timeframe when the next event(s) will be held.
