For the fourth consecutive year, G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded Clarion University the designation of Military Friendly School. The 2013 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.
"A school's inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media and director for G.I. Jobs. "As interest in education grows, we're thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."
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. The 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
