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.

Fall Military Briefing: Facebook Live

Update: This event has passed, but check out the recording if you missed it live!

As the Office of Military Affairs, we work with education offices and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to process military benefits for service members, veterans, and spouses and dependents of those who have served or are currently serving. In this live stream session, we will address the updates from the VA regarding the new Forever GI Bill® and the recently implemented zip code reporting policies, as well as important dates and deadlines for the upcoming semester, fun engagement opportunities for online and residential students, and much more.


Community Events

Lynchburg, Virginia offers a wonderful community for military veterans and their families.

We'll post those opportunities here as we become aware of what is being planned. If you live in or near Lynchburg, we hope you will take advantage of the wonderful community of support here in Lynchburg, VA!
