The Blinn College District will show its appreciation for veterans, active duty service members, and their families with focused registration and support resources from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at the Blinn-Bryan Campus Student Center.
The event, titled “Honoring Our Bravest,” will be hosted in Room F-120 (map). Priority registration for veterans and their dependents begins Oct. 9 for students prepared to register in advance of this event.
“Honoring Our Bravest is a one-stop process for our veterans and military families,” said Caryn Hawkins, Assistant Director of Academic Advising. “Blinn wants to ensure that military-connected students have access to all the resources available in our community. This event is one way we can show our appreciation and support the educational goals of all of our servicemen and women.”
At Honoring Our Bravest, military-connected students can meet with admissions, advising, and financial aid to register for classes and certify their Veterans Affairs benefits. Blinn’s Offices of Disability Services and Counseling and the Student Veterans Association also will be on site to provide support and answer questions. Rebecca Reyes, RELLIS Recruiter Advisor, will have information about the numerous programs available and the innovative partnership established with The Texas A&M University System through the RELLIS Academic Alliance.
The event also will include representatives from Texas A&M University’s Veteran Resource & Support Center and Texas A&M University’s Student Veteran Association. Recruiters for Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M University System will be on hand for students interested in exploring transfer opportunities at four-year institutions after completing course work at Blinn.
Blinn’s Veteran Services Office provides support and resources for active duty service members, veterans, and their families as they work to achieve their academic goals.
