For the fifth consecutive year, Delta College has been designated as a Military Friendly®
School by Victory Media. Now in its eighth year, the Military Friendly® School designation provides service
members and their families with information about post-military education and career
The designation is awarded to the top universities and community colleges in the country that are dedicating resources to ensure military students are successful both in the classroom and after graduation.
“Delta College is very pleased to be nationally recognized as a Military Friendly school again this year,” said Dr. Jean Goodnow, President. “We are committed to providing veterans the support services they need to get the education and training required to pursue a civilian career.”
“To demonstrate that commitment,” she added, “earlier this month Delta College unveiled its new Student Veteran Center. Thanks to a $7,000 grant from Home Depot and Student Veterans of America, Delta College student veterans now have a one-stop-shop that is welcoming and private. It allows student veterans a place to do things like get their GI Bill started, hold chapter meetings, study and connect with other veterans.”
Currently, there are about 300 students using their military educational benefits to attend Delta College.
Delta College will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools and on militaryfriendly.com/schools.
