The “2013 Military Friendly Schools” list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students to ensure their success on campus.
The list includes more than 1,700 schools that represent the top tier of U.S. colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to educate America’s veterans.
“It is a great honor to be selected as one of the top military friendly campuses in the nation,” said Dr. John Cade, associate vice provost. “The students, faculty and staff of Tennessee State University go above and beyond to ensure that our military, veterans and their families have an outstanding student experience.”
Now in its fourth year, the Military Friendly Schools list is gathered through extensive research and a survey of more than 12,000 schools nationwide. G.I. Jobs incorporated a student veteran survey for the second year, which helped provide prospective military students with insight to the student veteran experience at a certain university based on peer reviews from current students.
Universities recognized as “Military Friendly Schools” are those who have made an effort to offer scholarships and discounts, veterans’ clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to former members of the military.
“This is the least we can do for the men and women who have risked their lives for our country, “ added Cade. “They deserve any assistance and help we can offer to help them further their education as they remain in the military or transition to another phase of their lives.”
