Veterans Day Holiday on Wednesday, Nov. 11 – Campuses Closed

SCC will observe the Veterans Day Holiday on Nov. 11 by closing all three campuses for the day. Classes will resume on Thursday, Nov. 12.

Veterans Day actually began on Nov. 11, 1919, one year after World War I ended “on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918. It was originally called “Armistice Day.” In 1954, the name was changed to “Veterans Day” to honor all American servicemen and servicewomen who have fought in various wars.
