On Feb. 22, 2017, the second Meet Your Military-Connected Student event took place at Hale Library on the Manhattan campus. Nearly 60 K-State faculty and staff attended the event, which included representatives of military-connected students discussing key issues they face. Attendees rotated through a set of tables to learn varying perspectives and experiences of each military-connected student, ranging from children and spouses of military personnel to those retired from the military. The goal of this event was to help K-State faculty and staff better understand the differences between a traditional college student and a military-connected student, as well as how to support them throughout their academic career. The group discussed what faculty and staff members can do and what changes need to be made at the university to better support military-connected students. Events like this are extremely beneficial as it gives this population an opportunity to be heard.
