Two food trucks, Forks on the Road and Quick Fix Coffee, will provide food for purchase, and Kristian Colbert, a Maryville College student veteran and professional DJ, will play music. A static military display will be provided by McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base, and attendees will have an opportunity to meet and visit with current Maryville College student veterans and learn about their service experience.

Founded in 1819, it is the 12th oldest institution of higher learning in the South and maintains an affiliation with the Presbyterian Church (USA). Known for offering its students a rigorous and highly personal experience that includes an undergraduate research requirement, Maryville College is a nationally ranked institution of higher learning that successfully joins the liberal arts and professional preparation. Total enrollment for the Fall 2018 semester is 1,154.
