On Monday, Metropolitan State University of Denver, in partnership with fellow Auraria Campus institutions, will welcome the U.S. Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team for a tri-institutional celebration of students, faculty members and staff members who are veterans.

The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. and feature a precision parachuting demonstration by the Leap Frogs, who will land at the Tivoli Quad.

“Veteran’s Day is huge for the Leap Frogs,” said Daniel Gonzalez, U.S. Navy mass communications specialist’. “We love the opportunity to demonstrate what the Navy is capable of, and the team is very excited to visit the campus and be a part of the celebration. Attendees can expect to be awed!”

Immediately following the Leap Frogs demonstration and a celebration of the Auraria Campus’ military and veteran community, MSU Denver will host a pep rally to kick off the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women’s Volleyball Tournament, which begins Tuesday.

All Roadrunners and members of the campus community are invited to join the celebrations.
