UNO Division of Continuing Studies, Veteran Services to Host Informational Session
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Division of Continuing Studies and the UNO Veteran Services office will host the Veteran Education Briefing Saturday, May 30, at the William H. and Dorothy Thompson Alumni Center, 6705 Dodge St.
This event is free and open to all veterans or those in the military in the Omaha metropolitan area. UNO campus veterans are also encouraged to attend.
A continental breakfast will be available starting at 8:30 a.m., with information sessions from 9 to 11 a.m. The sessions will feature a variety of guest speakers with information on the following:
• Veteran education benefits and how to access them;
• Montgomery G.I. Bill vs. Post-9/11 Education Assistance Act: Which one is right for me?;
• Programs available at UNO tailored to veteran needs and experience; and
• Veteran support services on campus and in the Omaha area.
A current veteran student question-and-answer panel will also take place. Tables at the event will provide additional information on many different education and support items of interest to military veterans.
"There are many military veterans living and working in the Omaha metro area who could really benefit from this information, so that they can take full advantage of their veteran education benefits," said Hayley Patton, manager of Offutt and off-campus programs in the Division of Continuing Studies.

The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908. This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come. UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908.
