Daemen College has been selected as a top school in the 2015 Military Advanced Education's Guide to Colleges and Universities, making it the fourth time the college has received this national designation.
The guide, which was released in the December issue of Military Advanced Education, represents the result of a questionnaire of military-supportive policies at more than 600 institutions across the country. It's intended to arm students with information about colleges and universities that go out of their way to give back to men and women in uniform.
"Receiving this national distinction represents Daemen's longstanding commitment to providing the best resources and support to help our student veterans be successful in their educational endeavors," said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. "We are grateful to once again be recognized by Military Advanced Education."
Selection for the guide was based on military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services.
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 on campus for veterans to go to study and connect with fellow students who have served in the military.
The college also has an active student veterans alliance and holds several veteran-related activities and events during the year.
Daemen's selection as an MAE top school marks the second distinction recently received by the Amherst-based institution for its commitment to student veterans. The college was named to Victory Media's 2015 Military Friendly Schools list, which is awarded to only the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country.
