Veteran’s Day, a day when U.S. citizens honor fallen soldiers for the price they paid for our freedom. However, the Keene State College campus was quiet on Monday.
Besides the Zorn Dining Commons and Lloyd’s opening later than usual and classes and Hoot-n-Scoot being closed, KSC had no campus-wide celebration or remembrance. “I didn’t really think about that but they [the school] should have done something. Give awareness,” junior Sean Cowles said.
Although, KSC is not alone in the lack of ceremonious behavior. University of New Hampshire also closed the campus for an “all event day” without any events dealing with Veteran’s Day.
“I think it’s a good thing [having the day off]. I think the students should have the day off to honor veterans. It’s a good thing that the school honored that,” junior Greg Mathews said.
Mathews suggested that the school should have had a ceremony or had some veterans come to KSC to talk to students.
