Defiance College named “Military Friendly”

Defi­ance Col­lege has been des­ig­nated a 2016 Mil­i­tary Friendly School. The title 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. Schools are graded on mil­i­tary sup­port on cam­pus, grad­u­a­tion and employ­ment out­comes and mil­i­tary spouse poli­cies. This is the sev­enth con­sec­u­tive year that DC has been named to the list. This des­ig­na­tion pro­vides ser­vice mem­bers and their fam­i­lies with trans­par­ent, data-driven rat­ings about edu­ca­tion and career oppor­tu­ni­ties after leav­ing the military.

North­west State Com­mu­nity Col­lege will rec­og­nize vet­eran stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff with an appre­ci­a­tion lun­cheon on Novem­ber 17th. Offi­cials from the col­lege say it’s their way of thank­ing those mil­i­tary mem­bers for the sac­ri­fices they have made to pre­serve the country’s free­dom. They’ll also take the oppor­tu­nity to find out other things the school can do to help vet­er­ans who are enrolled, or may enroll at a future date. There are 40 stu­dent vet­er­ans attend­ing NSCC.
