GVSU named Military Friendly School for fifth year

Posted on September 10, 2013

Grand Valley State University has been named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media for the fifth consecutive year.

The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

The 2014 list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 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 consisting of educators from schools across the country.  

The 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in early October to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel.
