MSU named Military Friendly School for 2020-21

Military Friendly 2020-21For the second year in a row, Morehead State University has been named a Bronze-level Military Friendly School®.   

Viqtory Media, originator of the family of Military Friendly employment, entrepreneurship and education resources for veterans and their families, published the 2020-21 Military Friendly Schools and Employers ratings at militaryfriendly.com and in the upcoming May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.   
 
For more than a decade, Military Friendly ratings have set the standard for companies and colleges demonstrating positive employment and education outcomes for veterans and their families.   
 
“MSU again received the Military Friendly Bronze award, which is a concrete example of the intentionality we have in serving the military community,” said Dr. Silas Session, director of military initiatives. “MSU will continue to provide top-rated support for our veterans and military-dependent students across our campus to the greatest extent through recognition, programming, recruiting and retention of all military-related students.”   
 
Military Friendly® Schools strive toward and succeed in the areas that matter most in helping veterans make the transition from the military to school and, ultimately, satisfying careers in the civilian world.  The methodology for the ranking and the names of awardees are published online at militaryfriendly.com.
