Veterans Ball – Save the Date – April 7, 2018 – Tickets Available Now!

Our annual “Salute to Student Veterans” is a formal celebration recognizing those who served our country in the armed and military services, while uniting students, faculty, staff and University partners. The NYU Veterans Ball connects our past and present military Veterans with our nation’s next generation and future leaders of America.
