Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into
civilian life, has named King College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools ® list
for the fourth straight year. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® 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, and spouses as students and
ensure their success on campus.
“We’re pleased to be counted among those colleges honored by Victory Media and G.I.
Jobs,” said LeAnn Hughes, vice president of marketing and enrollment management for
King College. “Military students bring quality leadership skills to the classroom
along with an exceptional set of experiences.
“King works to provide a foundation of classical knowledge, as well as a responsive
educational atmosphere,” said Hughes. “We want our graduates to have the ability
to draw lessons from history, effectively utilize new technologies, navigate evolving
economic and political environments, and succeed in a rapidly changing world. We
know military students are particularly adept with their unique world perspective.”
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows King College’s commitment
to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, director
for G.I. Jobs 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 complete survey methodology is available at http://www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/Article/methodology-press-kit.
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 1,739 colleges,
universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the
recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® was compiled
through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved
schools nationwide. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings that
comprise the 2013 list were independently verified by Ernst and Young LLP. 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 (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
A full list of board members can be found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/board.
A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools ® will be highlighted
in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools ®, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and
former military personnel in early October. The Guide and associated media will also be featured at the Carrier Classic college basketball
game on Nov. 9, between Ohio State and Marquette on the deck of the USS Yorktown. Both participating schools are on this year’s list of Military Friendly Schools
