Adrian College Awarded 2016 Military Friendly Schools ® Designation

College is among the top 15 percent in the country to hold this honor.

ADRIAN, Mich. (November 5, 2015) – Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Adrian College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools® list.

The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.

 

“This is a very important recognition for the College,” said Dr. Frank Hribar, vice president of enrollment and student affairs. “It acknowledges the deliberate programming the College has embedding in its culture to reflect our community’s respect and gratitude for our country and the men and women who serve our military.”

 

The Military Friendly Schools® media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.  The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.  These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.

 

Now in its seventh year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly® provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

 

A full story and detailed list of 2016 Military Friendly Schools® will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools ®, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.

 

The survey captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.
