Bradley named a Military Friendly School

September 17, 2012

Peoria, IL (September 17, 2012) Bradley University has been named a 2013 Military Friendly School, a designation honoring the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses to ensure their success as students.

The list is compiled by Victory Media through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Inclusion on the Military Friendly Schools list shows Bradley’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students.

Bradley offers student veteran support services to assist students in achieving personal goals and to provide support, resources and information that meet the unique needs of veterans and their families. In addition, this fall a chapter of Student Veterans of America is being organized on campus to offer a support system for student veterans.

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October.

Bradley recently was ranked sixth best Midwest regional university by U.S.News & World Report’s annual college guide, America’s Best Colleges, and garnered additional national recognition when The Alumni Factor, a new college ranking system, included the University in its debut ranking of 177 universities.

Bradley is a private, independent university in Peoria, Illinois, offering 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students the choice of more than 100 academic programs. This size provides students with extensive resources not available at most private colleges and the personal attention not commonly found at large universities.
