Northeastern celebrates opening of just the second on-​​campus VFW post in nation

The uni­ver­sity expanded its com­mit­ment to stu­dent vet­erans on Monday after­noon, offi­cially opening a Vet­erans of For­eign Wars post during a cer­e­mony at the Vet­erans Memorial.The post is just the second in the nation to be run by stu­dent vet­erans on a col­lege campus.

Meet the graduates: Kimberly Ebberup

After serving in the U.S. Navy for 20 years, Ebberup applied to North­eastern because of its flex­ible course load for working pro­fes­sionals and unwa­vering sup­port for stu­dent vet­erans. On Friday, she walked at the Col­lege of Pro­fes­sional Studies grad­u­a­tion at Matthews Arena and will receive her bachelor’s degree in graphic design.
