It is meant to recognize the service that veterans have made and celebrate their transition to academic and civilian life.
The design of the monument includes an archway with two columns and a centerpiece with an inscription that invites visitors to remember and honor those who have served in the armed forces.
The Veterans Archway has been organized and planned by the UW Bothell Student Veterans Association. It is planned to be located at the northeast corner of the new sports complex with access to the North Creek regional trail.
The monument is expected to cost just under $60,000 -- all of it to be donated.
To date the students have raised more than $14,000 toward construction, including a $5,000 contribution from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Lake Washington Post 2995.
