Lake Erie College Named to 2014 Military Friendly Schools ListLake Erie College has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The list honors the top 20 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 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Lake Erie College's commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran.
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.
"We are thrilled that we have again been named to the Military Friendly Schools® list for the 2014 academic year. It is truly an honor for our increasing veteran population and the VETS program at Lake Erie College," said Bob Mastronicola, coordinator of veteran support services.
A full story and detailed list of 2014 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.
