CTU is a proud military-centric school, and has been since our inception by veterans in 1965. Because of this, November is of extreme importance to our university. Not only is it the month in which we celebrate Veterans Day, it is also the time of year when we announce the recipients of our annual CTU Patriot Scholarship.
