With plenty of fanfare, MTSU opened the center with a Nov. 5 ribbon-cutting on the first floor of Keathley University Center followed by a program in front of an overflow crowd in the KUC Theater.

The 2,600-square-foot, $329,000 center will be a one-stop-shop for MTSU’s approximately 1,000 student veterans and family members. The center is now the largest and most comprehensive veterans center among Tennessee universities.
