Adrian College Awarded Military Friendly Schools Title

ADRIAN, MI – 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 2013 list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students to ensure their success on campus. This is the third consecutive year Adrian College has been listed.

“Adrian College is honored once again to be selected as a Military Friendly School,” said Dr. Jeffrey Docking, president of Adrian College. “The College makes a concerted effort to assist in providing a foundation for these service men and women who return from the front lines to pursue their education.”

“In the eyes of Adrian College, these young men and women returning from war are heroes. They have risked their lives to serve our country and we are honored to serve them with a College education,” Docking continued. “The word “hero” is often overused in today’s society but this word aptly describes the young men and women returning from war. Their courage, strength, and commitment is laudable and Adrian College is more than willing to do everything possible to aid in their pursuit of their degree.”

The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows Adrian College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “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.”
