The College of William and Mary has been designated a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs, according to an announcement made by the magazine today.
The magazine, which is targeted to personnel who are transitioning into civilian life, included the College in its 2012 Military Friendly Schools list. The ranking includes 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.”
The magazine analyzed data from a survey of 8,000 schools nationwide to create the list of 1,518 colleges, universities and trade schools. They also conducted a survey of student veterans. Feedback from that survey may be viewed online. According to the magazine, schools were selected for offering scholarships, military credit, clubs and other services and opportunities to service members and veterans.
The list will be included in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, which will be distributed to active and former service members in October. The list is also available online at http://www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.
