The 1,739 colleges, universities, and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
“We are very proud that ASU has been designated a 2013 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, and we pledge to continually strive to expand and improve our services to military members, veterans and their families,” said Carol Giardina, director of military outreach.
ASU’s military initiatives have resulted in the development of the Military and Veterans Services Center, a one stop shop for servicemembers who wish to enroll at the university. The center assists military members, veterans, and affiliated family members in processing veteran affairs benefits and assisting with the GoArmyEd portal.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Augusta State’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,” said Collins.
The university also was designated as one of the nation’s 2012 Guide to Top Military Friendly Colleges and Universities by Military Advanced Education, the Journal for Higher Learning for Today’s Servicemember.
