Siena Heights University was named a “Military Friendly School” by Victory Media for the fourth consecutive year.
The 2013 list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Siena Heights University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs Magazine and vice president at Victory Media.
Siena Heights has made a commitment to its veterans population. The Siena Heights Student Veterans group is active on campus, and each November SHU hosts the Operation: SERVE job and resource fair on campus that is targeted to help veterans find employment and resources.
The 2013 list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The survey results that comprise the list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual “G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools,” distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.
