Albany State, Darton on Military Friendly ListJanuary 12, 2017 | :
ALBANY, Ga. – Albany State University and Darton State College have earned the 2017 Military Friendly School designation by Victory Media.
First published in 2009, Military Friendly Schools is a comprehensive, powerful resource for veterans. Each year, the list of Military Friendly Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
“We are honored to receive this designation for the sixth year in a row,” says Director of Military and Adult Education Stefane Raulerson at Darton State College. “Darton State College’s Military Resource Center strives to provide individually tailored resource guidance for military students, to include active-duty, reservists, veterans, and family members as they achieve their higher education goals.”
“As a retired Naval Aviator Commander who served for 22 years on active duty around the world and someone who worked closely with the first African-American commissioned officers in the U.S. Navy, I personally know what it means for an institution to be military friendly,” said Claven Williams, ASU Military Liaison. “Albany State University earned the title in 2009 and has continually maintained it. The ASU Military Outreach Center serves as a haven and guide for our military students and their families as they attend the university.”
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey; 1,160 were awarded with the designation.
