(MPTSS) is excited to celebrate the end of the academic year with its annual Post-Traditional Appreciation Week, beginning on Monday, April 24. All military and post-traditional students are invited to all three upcoming events.
The festivities will kick off with the inaugural Celebration Ceremony on Tuesday, April 25, from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Capitol Room in the Holmes Student Center. Graduating military and post-traditional students, as well as featured staff and adult learners from this year’s monthly newsletters, will be honored at this event. MPTSS will have special recognitions for one student veteran and one post-traditional student in the form of its Four-Star and Eli Whitney Awards. Also, commencement cords to MPTSS’ graduating student veterans will be distributed. Food will be provided and attendees should feel free to dress casually. All who are part of the campus community are invited. All military or post-traditional students who are graduating are welcome to contact the MPTSS office ahead of time.
“We are excited to host this inaugural appreciation week Celebration Ceremony,” Assistant Director Jeffery Salmon said. “We believe that this new signature event is a great way to celebrate all of our graduating post-traditional students, our students that have finished a challenging semester and faculty members that have made a difference in our students’ academic careers.”
On Thursday, April 27, MPTSS is hosting a Game Night downstairs in the MPTSS Lounge from 5-7 p.m. Pizza and drinks will be provided. The aim of the event is for students to drop by to play some board games, hang out and relax before finals.
On Friday, April 28, an end-of-the-year cook-out on the North Lawn of Adams Hall from 11 a.m.-2 p.m will be held. All students are welcome for grilling and great conversation as well as enjoy a spring day eating outside on our beautiful campus.
