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.

Military Family Fun Day

Notice: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Liberty University is taking every precaution necessary to ensure the safety of all students and guests. Therefore, we have decided to cancel our Military Family Fun Day event.

Liberty University officials have been meeting regularly and carefully monitoring the situation, maintaining contact with state public health officials, and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for college campuses. The decisions we are making rely heavily on the guidance we are receiving from the CDC and the Virginia Department of Health and are intended to protect the health and welfare of our students, faculty, staff, and local community.

For the most up-to-date information, visit CDC or The Virginia Department of Health and Learn more about how we’re responding to COVID-19 at Liberty.
