The day will begin with an 8 a.m. flag-raising ceremony by the flagpole at the main College entrance off Route 32, Mohegan Avenue.
At noon, a meditation hour, “Come into the Quiet,” will be held in Harkness Chapel, led by The Rev. Carolyn Patierno, a College chaplain.
The College community will honor staff, faculty and students who are veterans with a reception at 3 p.m. in the Charles E. Shain Library Living Room.
At 4:30 p.m., Catherine Stock, the Kohn Professor of History and director of the American studies program, will be joined by floor governors Lindsey Nelson ’17 and Steve Grinsztein ’18, Health Services Physician Ken Larsen, and Sam Santiago ’17 for a REF (Residential Education Fellows) Program discussion, “Do We Really ‘Support’ the Troops?
