Much like our university’s mission, we also aim to use knowledge, discovery, creativity, and innovation to help solve everyday problems. For this reason, we’ve decided to dedicate our first annual MLH event to giving back to the United States military community. We hope that the hackers’ creations will help bridge the military-civilian divide and also help with their transitions post-service.
