Crown Awarded 'Military Friendly School" Title from G.I. Jobs
Award honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members and veterans as students.
G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded Crown College the designation of Military Friendly School. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America?s military service members and veterans as students.
In its effort to help student veterans find the right school, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans for the first time. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular institution based on peer reviews from current students. Student veteran survey feedback can be viewed at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/2012 list. Michael Dakduk, Executive Director for the Student Veterans of America agrees. ?The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience. Nothing is more compelling than actual feedback from current student veterans.?
Service members and veterans can also meet individual student veterans from the various schools virtually on the site to learn more about personal school decisions and the transition from the military to an academic environment.
The colleges, universities and trade schools on this year?s list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience. These schools are making the grade by offering scholarships and discounts, veterans? clubs, full-time staff, military credit and other services to those who served.
