Eastern Washington University is recognizing veterans and military students during the spring commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 15, with special commemorative graduation cords.
In addition to cap and gown attire, veterans and military graduates will wear a braided red, white and blue honor cord symbolizing their service to our country. The cord represents the appreciation that Eastern feels toward our military and veteran community and the commitment they have made in completing their degrees.
EWU is privileged to be known as a “military friendly” university and this new tradition is a way to pay tribute to our veteran and military graduates in a unique way.
The honor cords are being purchased by the EWU Veterans Resource Center (VRC) through generous donations and will be made available free of charge to all undergraduate and graduate military and veteran students.
