Athens State University has once again been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs Magazine, a division of Victory Media, Inc. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Athens 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.”
Athens State has been named to the list of Military Friendly Schools for the past four years. The list of institutions was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey results that comprise the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
“We are pleased to be recognized, once again, by Victory Media,” states Athens State’s Director of Veterans Affairs Lisa Payne. “We are proud of our Veterans Program and happy to have been a part of this important listing of schools who value our military students.”
