St. Andrews named to 2012 Military Friendly Schools List
List shows veterans which colleges provide the best fit
St. Andrews Presbyterian College is included in the 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools compiled byG.I. Jobs.
This 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.
“St. Andrews is honored to be recognized for our efforts to support the educational pursuits of those who have served our country,” said Cynthia Robinson, vice president for enrollment at St. Andrews. “We have worked hard to help our veterans and their families succeed in earning the quality education we provide.”
This is the third consecutive year St. Andrews has been included in this listing.
The list was compiled through exhaustive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
For the first time, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular institution based on peer reviews from current students.
“The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience,” said Michael Dakduk, executive director for the Student Veterans of America. “Nothing is more compelling than actual feedback from current student veterans.”
