Houghton Named a 2014 Military Friendly School
Victory Media has named Houghton College to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list.
The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
Victory Media is the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Houghton College’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, vice president at Victory Media.
The Military Friendly Schools list (www.militaryfriendlyschools.com) features the top-ranked military friendly schools, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.
The 1,868 schools on the 2014 list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who have served.
“The need for education is growing, and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” Collins said.
