King University News :: King College Named Military Friendly School

King College has been selected as a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs, the premier publication for transitioning military personnel. Published by a veteran-owned business headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., the 2010 list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students.

We're pleased to be counted among those colleges honored by G.I. Jobs, said Micah Crews, interim director of enrollment management. Military students bring quality leadership skills to the classroom along with an exceptional set of experiences.

The recently enacted Post-9/11 GI Bill makes available tuition monies for veterans to obtain their degree. The Military Friendly School list provides veterans a trusted source to locate and compare quality academic institutions, thereby furthering the veteran's decision process of which school to attend.

King works to provide a foundation of classical knowledge, as well as a responsive educational atmosphere, said Crews. 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 that military students are particularly adept at this with their unique world perspective.

The Military Friendly School list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last May during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria, and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee (AAC) consisting of educators and administrators from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquesne University, Coastline Community College, and Lincoln Technical Institute.
