In recognition of Memorial Day today, are re-issuing this post about Hofstra’s work with our military veterans.
And, if you are a veteran, be sure to check out our participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
As reported by MetroMBA:
“Hofstra University has been named to the 2015 Military Friendly School List. This list includes the top 15 percent of colleges and universities that do the most to embrace members of the military, veterans, and their spouses. This is the second consecutive year Hofstra has made the list. The 2015 list of Military Friendly Schools ®, was compiled by Victory Media Inc. The list is created from a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide that have been approved for post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The survey scores institutions in several categories, including military support on campus, veteran graduation rates, program flexibility for military students, and military spouse policies.”
U.S News & World Report ranks Hofstra number 36 on its list of Best Colleges for Veterans: “These are the top-ranked schools in the 2015 Best Colleges rankings that participate in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty service members apply for, pay for and complete their degrees.”
