Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named Buffalo State to its coveted Military Friendly Schools list.
The 2013 list honors the top 15 percent of U.S. colleges, universities, and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher commended Buffalo State and 33 other SUNY campuses on being recognized as “military friendly” by Victory Media’s top-rated national military publication, G.I. Jobs Magazine.
"The SUNY system is a recognized leader in assisting military personnel in the transition to civilian life after their service to our country," said Chancellor Zimpher. "As the largest system of public higher education in the country, SUNY offers extensive educational and career opportunities in more than 7,500 degree and certificate programs in every community in New York State. We take great pride in the fact that so many of our returning service men and women turn to SUNY for their education, and thank G.I. Jobs Magazine for this recognition.”
"Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Buffalo State’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students," said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs and vice president at Victory Media. "As interest in education grows, we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools."
The 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools, now in its fourth year, was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.
