EUGENE, Ore. — The University of Oregon will open its Student Veterans Center at the Erb Memorial Union on Saturday, April 20.
The center will provide a space for student veterans and their families to gather at the university.
The opening of the center completes the purpose that former UO President Donald Erb envisioned for the union. Erb was the university’s president when WWII veterans were returning to campus; he worked with state officials to build the student union, which was named in his honor.
The celebration will take place from 1:30-3 p.m. in the EMU Amphitheater or the EMU Taylor Lounge if raining.
