Under the leadership of the State University of New York at Fredonia Office of Veterans Affairs, Fredonia holds a service for U.S. veterans around Veteran's Day each fall.

The event, held in the Williams Center, provides a forum through which the university and surrounding community gather to remember, honor and show their gratitude to the countless men and women who have served our country through the many branches of the Armed Forces.

The highlight of the event is the presentation of the annual Fredonia Veterans Scholarship, made possible by donations to the Fredonia College Foundation.
