Manhattan College Continues to be Recognized as Outstanding School for Veterans
The College adds to its U.S. News & World Report recognition as a top destination for veteran students.
Manhattan College has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds, and publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM JobsSM and Military Spouse. Now in its seventh year, the original premier Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly School title by completing a survey of more than 100 questions covering 10 categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success. In addition, data was independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media with guidance from an independent advisory board of higher education and recruiting professionals. A full list of board members can be found at militaryfriendly.com/advisory-council-2.
The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has made the student veteran landscape much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past seven years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.

Manhattan College will be showcased along with other 2016 Military Friendly Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse Magazine, and onMilitaryFriendly.com.
Further highlighting our commitment to U.S. military service members past and present is Manhattan’s VALOR Club, a campus organization that works to inform the community about educational opportunities and resources available to veterans. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, members will march for the first time in the 2015 America’s Parade along 5th Avenue in New York City, which this year will commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II.
