Grand Valley named Military Friendly School

Posted on

For the second consecutive year, Grand Valley State University has been named “A Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs magazine.

G.I. Jobs released its list, 2011 Military Friendly Schools, on August 16. It lists the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that make it easy for veterans to enroll, have supportive programs for veterans and military spouses, and recruit and retain veterans as students. The list is online at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.

Steven Lipnicki, assistant dean of students at Grand Valley, said about 380 veterans are expected to enroll at Grand Valley for the fall semester. The university has created a Veterans Network of faculty and staff members who are knowledgeable about veteran’s issues, including representatives from Admissions, Academic Advising, Registrar’s Office, Career Services, Counseling and Disability Support Services. A website was also created, www.gvsu.edu/veterans.
