Contributions of Military Personnel Honored Every Day at GWU’s Freedom Hall

A unique space on the Gardner-Webb University campus honors the contributions of military service personnel every day—but is especially significant on Veterans Day, recognized each year on Nov. 11.

Freedom Hall, established in 2015 and located on the ground floor of the Dover Campus Center, honors the military contributions of the extended university family, including faculty, staff, current students, alumni and members of their immediate family. The University’s strong support of military service personnel has been evidenced in recent years by multiple honors that recognize the institution’s exceptional educational services for troops and their families.

Freedom Hall is a physical location that provides a tangible affirmation of GWU’s commitment to providing post-military education while also spotlighting the University’s role in connecting veterans with career opportunities.

Gardner-Webb has consistently been recognized for its support of the nation’s troops. Among those honors, the University was named a 2017 Military-Friendly Institution by Military Advanced Education, an organization that promotes higher education opportunities for military personnel and their families, and by G.I. Jobs/Victory Media, which advocates for educational and career opportunities for veterans and active-duty service members.

The military-friendly rating is annually determined through voluntary surveys that measure the campus military support, graduation and employment outcomes, military spouse policies and other criteria of various colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools across the country.
