Southern Wesleyan University named 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. The list was compiled through extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
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.
The 1,518 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list prioritize the recruitment of students with military experience, offering scholarships and discounts to those who served in the military.
A full story and detailed list of Military Friendly Schools® will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools and on a poster, both of which will be distributed to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October. The newly redesigned website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com features the list, interactive tools and search functionality to assist military veterans with their school decisions.
G.I. Jobs (www.gijobs.com) is published by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business which also publishes The Guide to Military Friendly Schools, Military Spouse and Vetrepreneurmagazines and annually rates the nation’s military friendly employers, military spouse friendly employers and best corporations for veteran-owned businesses.
