YSU deemed "Military Friendly" for ninth consecutive year

Youngstown State University’s services for veterans has earned yet another honor.

YSU has been designated a Military Friendly university by GI Jobs magazine. It is the ninth consecutive year that YSU has been awarded the designation.

The honor comes just two weeks after Military Times named YSU a “Best for Vets College 2017.”

Schools are selected for the Military Friendly list based on a comprehensive survey completed by each applicant, as well as assessments on student veteran retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates.

The full list of the 2017 Military Friendly schools is available at http://militaryfriendly.com/schools/.

YSU established the Office of Veteran Affairs in 2009 to assist students who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces in attaining their educational goals. A new $1.25 million YSU Veterans Resource Center opened in 2014 to help improve and expand services to military veterans and service members transitioning to student life at YSU.
