For a seventh consecutive year — making it a perfect seven-for-seven, in fact, since the honor’s origin — UW-Green Bay has been named a “Military Friendly School.” Victory Media, Inc., puts UW-Green Bay among the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s service members and veterans as students. Among factors contributing to the University’s top-tier placement in the survey:
— One of the UW System’s highest enrollments of active-duty and veteran students (about 5 percent of total enrollment);
— A strong student organization (the Vets 4 Vets Club);
— Institutional commitment to veterans services, including a dedicated staff position;
— Active programming, service work and outreach efforts (things like Care Packages, thank-you notes, special events);
— A dedicated veterans center on campus (At Ease Lounge in MAC Hall); and
— Demonstrated success in retaining and graduating students who are veterans.
