Saint Leo Again Named "Military Friendly School"
August 16, 2010
Saint Leo University is pleased to announce its inclusion in G. I. Jobs magazine’s 2011 list of Military Friendly Schools at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/2011list.
The annual list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, community colleges, and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s military and student-veteran populations. More than 7,000 schools nationally were surveyed for the list. Saint Leo University was also included in the magazine’s 2010 list.
“This list is especially important now because the Post-9/11 GI Bill has given veterans virtually unlimited financial means to go to school,” said Rich McCormack, G.I. Jobs publisher. “Veterans can now enroll in any school, provided they’re academically qualified. So schools are clamoring for them like never before. Veterans need a trusted friend to help them decide where to get educated. The Military Friendly Schools list is that trusted friend.”
Saint Leo University, in addition to serving as an enthusiastic supporter of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, has been a respected educational provider to military service members and veterans for more than 35 years.
The university operates teaching locations on or near military bases in seven states, in addition to the University Campus in central Florida. Military students may also enroll in courses through the university’s Center for Online Learning, and earn academic credits from locations around the world.
