Scheduled for Wednesday, April 24, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the event welcomes transitioning soldiers, active-duty military personnel, veterans, and their families from the surrounding area.

The summit will offer hands-on workshops led by faculty experts covering various domains such as media, cybersecurity, computer science, entrepreneurship, and digital media technology. Attendees will have the chance to engage in simulations exploring educational paths to the digital world.
