G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian
life, has awarded King College the designation of Military Friendly School for the
third consecutive year. The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors 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.
In its effort to help student veterans find the right school, G.I. Jobs incorporated
a survey of student veterans for the first time. This feedback provides prospective
military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular
institution based on peer reviews from current students. Michael Dakduk, executive
director for the Student Veterans of America, agrees. The Military Friendly Schools
list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools
that provide the right overall experience. Nothing is more compelling than actual
feedback from current student veterans.
King has a VA representative on campus to assist in military service members and veterans
in making their college dream a reality. King accepts qualifying credits from the
military, old credits, as well as credits from ITT, National, and previously accredited
We're delighted to be counted among those colleges honored by G.I. Jobs, said Micah
Crews, associate vice president of 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 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 military students are particularly adept with their unique world perspective.
The 1,518 colleges, universities, and trade schools on this year's list prioritize
the recruitment of students with military experience. These schools are making the
grade by offering scholarships and discounts, veterans' clubs, full-time staff, military
credit and other services to those who have served. The 2012 list was compiled through
extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance
of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the
The newly redesigned website by G.I. Jobs, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com,
features the list, interactive tools and search functionality to assist military veterans
with their school decisions.
