Morehead State University has for the third straight year been named a “Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs Magazine, placing it in the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.
The common bond of these institutions is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience.
Veterans interested in learning more about MSU can get additional information by calling Jill McBride, student veteran advocate in the Transition Center in the Office of Enrollment Services, at 783-2000. McBride stands ready to connect new student veterans with the number of services provided across campus.
“We’re pleased to be recognized as a campus community that truly cares about helping veterans and their families with the transition to college life. Jill and many others at MSU are personally dedicated to helping these individuals accomplish their educational mission,” said Jeffrey Liles, assistant vice president for enrollment services.
The magazine analyzed data from a survey of 8,000 schools nationwide to create the list of 1,518 colleges, universities and trade schools. They also conducted a survey of student veterans.
According to the magazine, schools were selected for offering scholarships, military credit, clubs and other services and opportunities to service members and veterans.
The list will be included in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, which will be distributed to active and former service members in October.
“Veterans can now enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified. Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated. The Military Friendly Schools list is that trusted friend,” said Rich McCormack, G.I. Jobs publisher.
