SVSU named Military Friendly for 4th straight year

Saginaw Valley State University’s commitment to veterans and military personnel has been recognized by being named to the Military Friendly® list of schools for the fourth consecutive year. Selected by Victory Media, the list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans, spouses and dependents as students, and ensure their success on campus.

“We are proud of SVSU's continued inclusion on this list and fully expect to keep improving as the University’s already immense support of our department grows even stronger,” said Denise Berry, director of Military Student Affairs at SVSU.

The Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is in its sixth year. Military Friendly provides service members and veterans data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

The methodology for making the list has changed the student veteran landscape to one more transparent and has played a significant role in recording and advancing best practices to support military students across the country. The survey captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is free of charge to more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.

“We have worked very hard to provide the types of programs and services our military students need and deserve,” Berry said.
