WWU recognized as ‘Military Friendly School’

Western Washington University for the fourth year has been selected as a “Military Friendly School” for 2014, placing Western in the top 20 percent of all higher education institutions nationwide.

Based on a survey of more than 10,000 colleges and universities, Western is one of the schools to receive recognition for doing the most to assist America’s military service members and veterans as students.

 “We feel it is very important to welcome and to help veterans transition as much as possible to university life, providing as much support as we can,” said Western Registrar David Brunnemer.

Western offers a range of Veterans Services through the Registrar’s Office. The Associated Students have a very active Veterans Outreach Center.

The Military Friendly Schools® media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,868 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
