Nov. 12, 2015

McConell AFB Veterans Day Hockey Game

Webster University's McConnell Air Force Base campus location in Wichita, Kansas, was the proud sponsors of the Nov. 11 Wichita Thunder Veterans Day hockey game in the ECHL.

Military veterans were offered $2 specialty ticket pricing to the game against the Tulsa Oilers. Webster staff, faculty, students and alumni enjoyed a thrilling overtime shootout win by the Wichita Thunder.

McConnell AFB also proudly sponsors a popular fan promotion, the "sweet seat" upgrade, where two fans are selected each game to sit by the penalty box at the second and third intermission. Winners also receive a Webster University t-shirt.

McConnell AFB looks forward to sponsoring the Friday, Feb. 5 Thunder game in partnership with the American Heart Association (AHA) for "Go Red for Women" night. The month of February celebrates Women's Health Awareness. AHA created the "Go Red for Women," social initiative to dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease and stroke as the number one killer of women. The initiative is designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.

Fans can get a free upper level ticket voucher that can be redeemed for a free upper level ticket or a chance to upgrade into the lower bowl. The players will also wear special jerseys that will be auctioned with the net proceeds benefiting AHA.

Webster and Military Education

Webster University opened its first military campus location in 1974, and since then has provided unmatched educational programs to U.S. military personnel on the installations where they work and live for more than 40 years.

Webster has quickly and consistently established itself as a leader in military education—recognized as a "military-friendly" and "vet-friendly" educational institution. Also a VA Yellow Ribbon participant, Webster has assisted military students in making their educational dreams come true.

The University's distinguished record of top tier rankings in U.S. News and World Report, GI Jobs, Advanced Military Education, charter member status in both the Service Opportunity College (SOC) and the DoD MOU shows why Webster University is an institution that delivers high quality and fully accredited educational programs.
