Chancellor John Carey will tour Ohio State’s Veterans’ Lounge and discuss the new guidelines at 2:30 p.m. in the lounge, located in room 1132A, Smith Laboratory, 174 W. 18th Ave.

In addition, Wayne Carlson, vice provost for undergraduate studies, and Mike Carrell, assistant provost and director of the Office of Military and Veterans Services, will explain the comprehensive resources available at Ohio State for military and veteran students. Current veteran students also will be available for interviews.
