Veteran Success Center grand opening set for Nov. 7

'Flags for the Fallen' to be planted for Veterans Day observance


OSU-Tulsa will open its Veteran Success Center at 4 p.m. on Nov. 7 as part of its week-long observance of Veterans Day.

The public is invited to attend the grand opening and ribbon-cutting event.

Located on the west side of the Main Hall Commons, the center will be a place for veterans and military-affiliated students to study and interact with one another as they transition to college life.

More than 1,700 flags planted on campus to observe Veterans Day

OSU-Tulsa students, faculty, staff and members of the public planted more than 1,700 American flags on a campus hillside last year in observance of Veterans Day.

In addition, OSU-Tulsa will honor those who have lost lives in the global war on terrorism by planting more than 1,700 American flags on a campus hillside beginning at 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 6.

'Flags for the Fallen' is part of OSU-Tulsa's observance of Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

Each flag will represent four U.S. service members who gave their lives in military action in the global war on terrorism. The university will provide small flags for the memorial and placement will continue until all flags are planted.

'Flags for the Fallen' will be located adjacent to North Hall on the north side of John Hope Franklin Boulevard near the intersection with Greenwood Avenue. The display will continue over the Veterans Day weekend through Monday, Nov. 13. 

Veterans Day is a national holiday to mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. The day is set aside each year to honor living U.S. veterans and those who lost their lives in service to America.

The public is invited to drive through campus to view the flags or park in Lot D and view from the sidewalk. Campus parking is free.

OSU-Tulsa is located at 700 N. Greenwood Avenue, near I-244 and Detroit Avenue in downtown Tulsa.
