The University of Scranton dedicated and blessed a new Veterans and ROTC Resource Lounge on campus as part of its Veterans Day events on Nov. 11.

Thanking veterans for their service, U.S. Senator Bob Casey said in his remarks at the dedication ceremony that their selfless service and sacrifice “make it possible for us to continue as a country” and likened a military vocation to a Jesuit education.

“Jesuits have always focused on being ‘men and women for others,’ which is a pretty good description of a veteran,” said Senator Casey, who also noted veterans share the Jesuits’ commitment to excellence in all they do.


In his remarks, Lt. Col. Lars Wendt, professor on military science and ROTC commander at Scranton, called the University community “military-friendly” and said what the University does for veterans and the ROTC is “immense.”

“This resource lounge is just another example of that support,” said Lt. Col. Wendt.
