VALOR Tailgate 2016 A Big Success

August 30, 2016

On Friday, August 26th, GW VALOR held its third annual VALOR Tailgate and Resource Fair. All new and returning VALOR students were invited to meet other students, network with external organizations that support veterans, gain a better understanding of their VA benefits, and enjoy themselves! From four to seven in the evening, both incoming and returning GW students came to University Yard to attend this fun occasion.

VALOR’s feature event offered both a tailgate and a resource fair. The resource fair, organized by GW’s Office of Career Services, featured dozens of organizations supporting veterans that VALOR students enjoyed speaking with. In addition to the opportunity for students to network, our event offered traditional aspects of a tailgate, including a barbecue, multiple raffles for door prizes, variety of lawn games, and even a caricature artist.

Every year, the tailgate attracts more and more attendees, and this year was no different. With over 100 attendees, this year’s event was the most successful yet. Thank you to Two Marines Moving for generously sponsoring the door prizes, and thank you to everyone that attended!
