A crowd gathered Friday, Sep. 25, between Academic and Memorial Hall to dedicate the newly finished Veterans Plaza and witness the first flag-raising ceremony in honor of the military service of Southeast veterans.    

“It is very emotional for many people because many of them were veterans themselves,” University President Carlos Vargas said. “So it becomes emotional, and I think that’s one of the strongest characteristics of today’s event.”
