Saint Xavier University (SXU) recently was named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list in recognition of its efforts to reach out to veterans and military personnel. The list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
“Military veterans are warmly welcomed to Saint Xavier University,” said President Christine M. Wiseman, J.D., whose own father was a Navy veteran of the D-Day Invasion at Omaha Beach. “We are proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, and we encourage service members to learn more about the many other ways that SXU extends a friendly hand to our nation’s military veterans.”
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. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services to those who served.
