Northwest Missouri State University Campus Dining will salute military day personnel and commemorate Veterans Day by offering some specials Monday, Nov. 11.  

Veterans and active duty personnel who show a military identification can receive a complimentary cup of brewed coffee at Starbucks or Einstein Bros. Bagels, or they can receive 50 percent off a meal at Chick-fil-A.

Starbucks is located at the campus’ B.D. Owens Library and is open 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday. Einstein Bros. Bagels is open 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Chick-fil-A is open 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.; both are located on the second floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union.

Additionally, Northwest Wellness Services invites students to “thank a veteran and grab some grub” at the Memorial Bell Tower. Food will be served from noon to 2 p.m. Monday at the Bell Tower, and the event is part of Northwest’s “Live Your Life Week,” a collaborative effort sponsored by Wellness Services, Project Hope, Bearcat Peer Education, the Psychology/Sociology Society, To Write Love on Her Arms and Personal Development and Counseling.

This fall, Northwest was named a Military Friendly School for the second consecutive year as a result of its reputation for offering a positive experience for military students. Northwest, which is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, offers a range of degree and certification programs that benefit military students. The University also is VA approved, gives credit for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST). The University follows American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations when granting credit for military experience or from other regionally accredited institutions as transcripts are evaluated by the Office of Admissions.

Further enhancing the services it offers to veterans, Northwest recently entered into a partnership with the Missouri Veterans Commission to house a Veteran Service Officer, or VSO, at its Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. VSO Jesse Campbell is available to meet veterans, students of military families and other individuals who need assistance with military services during the first and third Monday of each month.

Walk-in hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and individuals are served on a first-come, first-served basis. Campbell is located in Room 1222 of the CIE and may be contacted by calling 660.562.1710 or There is no cost for the service.

Additionally, Nate Whiters, MS LMFT, of the Kansas City Vet Center is available to meet with veterans for readjustment counseling from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the third Friday of each month.
