For the sixth consecutive year, Daemen College has been selected by Victory Media for the Military Friendly Schools list, a designation awarded to only the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that have demonstrated a commitment to supporting student veterans on campus and in their careers.
"Being selected again for this national designation aptly reflects Daemen's continued dedication to providing an outstanding education and comprehensive services to the veterans who are an important part of our college community," said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. "We are proud to have been selected as a 2015 Military Friendly School."
The Daemen Center for Veterans and Veteran Family Services provides assistance, resources, support and advocacy to help student veterans be successful in college and after graduation. In addition, the Nancy Haberman Gacioch Center for Veterans offers a centralized place where veterans can go to study, connect with other students with military service, or simply relax in between classes.
In addition, the Daemen Student Veterans Alliance is an active organization on campus, and several veteran-related activities and events are held throughout the year.
Daemen has been on the Military Friendly Schools list since it was launched six years ago by Victory Media, a leading media company for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The list was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 VA-approved schools nationwide that captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students, including military support on campus, academic credibility and academic credit for military service.
