Military Events

Events for Military Students

Liberty University is committed to cultivating an atmosphere of camaraderie and support among our military student population. Each semester, the office of Military Affairs plans events just for our military student population. This not only gives you an opportunity to connect with other military students, but also gives us the chance to extend our gratitude for your service. Whether you are a current service member, veteran, or military spouse, we hope to see you at an upcoming event. If you have any questions about Liberty University Military events below, please contact our Military Outreach team at militaryoutreach@liberty.edu.
