YSU deemed “Military Friendly” for fourth year

For the fourth consecutive year, Youngstown State University has been named a Military Friendly School.

The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list, produced by Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Youngstown State University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs magazine 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.”

The Military Friendly Schools website at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com features the list of all schools, as well as interactive tools to help military students find the best school to suit their needs and preferences.

YSU established the Office of Veteran Affairs in January 2009 to assist YSU students who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces in attaining their educational goals. The office is located in Tod Hall on the YSU campus.
