A message for friends, family and alumni

On Veterans Day and every day, we celebrate our brave servicemen and women who make sacrifices for us and our country. 

We are especially grateful for our student veterans who selflessly balance their military obligations with their school work, their families, and so much more. 

Thank you for your service.



Your support of the Ohio State Fund for Military and Veterans Services provides our increasing population of military and veteran students the resources they need for academic success and a rich student experience.


Ohio State University graduate and retired Gen. John “Mike” Murray returned to his alma mater Wednesday to help lead the university’s annual tribute to veterans.

David Hibler ’12, ’12, ’20 MS has walked a winding, productive path through nearly two decades at Ohio State. 

After transitioning out of military service, many veterans feel the need to continue their service as mission-driven public and nonprofit leaders for the public good.
