Representatives from more than 20 veterans and community organizations and nearly 20 colleges and universities will come to Chemeketa Community College for the Veterans Services College Fair.
The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, October 20, at the Student Center in Building 2 on the Salem campus.
While this is a veterans fair, it will offer information for the community beyond just those who are veterans–
- Non-veterans can receive information about various colleges and the services available to them.
- Veterans not currently in college can learn about the steps needed to get started with college.
- Veterans currently in college can learn about the services local non-profits offers to veterans in college.
“We are proud to offer this event that gives support on attending college to everyone, along with providing a special emphasis to the veterans in our community,” said Jon Terrazas, Chemeketa’s coordinator of veterans services.
All veterans who attend the event will receive a voucher for a meal at the college’s food court.
The fair is organized by Chemeketa’s Veterans Services office. The Oregon National Guard is the lead sponsor, with additional support generously provided by Eagle Home Mortgage, Edward Jones, Key Bank, T-Mobile and the Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace.
