Suicide Awareness Walk
- September 24
- Historic 25th Street in Downtown Ogden

NUHOPE, Northern Utah's suicide prevention coalition will host a suicide awareness walk. This year's speaker will be Retired Army Sergeant Josh Hansen, a two-tour Iraq veteran who was wounded in action. His battalion lost six men in combat and four to suicide once they returned home. Josh and his wife Melissa have devoted their lives to serving fellow veterans with service-connected physical, mental, and emotional injuries through their non-profit organization Continue Mission.
Have you ever wanted to give back to your fellow veterans and get paid for it? If you are looking for part time work or need to build your resume and develop networking opportunities, become a Weber State veteran peer mentor. Share your experience as a student veteran and provide support to fellow student veterans.
You will receive training on educational benefits and services available to veterans that will not only allow you to help others, but will provide you with information to advance your own education as well.

Credit For Military Service and Training
Any member of the military wishing to receive credit for military service or training must contact the Admissions office. Credits for training will be reviewed and the Admissions office. If you have any questions regarding this process that seem unclear, please contact the Weber State Veteran Services office at 801-626-6039 or 6042.
If you are a veteran or military member, you can register each semester with senior status. Check with WSU veteran services to make sure you are coded as such. Also, prior to the beginning of each semester, you must provide our office with a copy of your Cat Tracks so we will know how many hours to certify you for. Each time VA sends you a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility listing the amount of months/days remaining entitlement you have. These steps will help speed up the process for you to receive your entitlements.
During your successful pursuit of education here at Weber State, MAKE NO CHANGES to your schedule unless you have contacted our office. Changes in your schedule will result in a debt to you either from the University or the Department of Veteran Affairs regional office.
