Huntsville, Ala. ---- Alabama A&M University has recently been named a Military Friendly School® for 2014 by a nationally recognized veteran-oriented publication.
The coveted designation places AAMU among the top 15 percent of schools
nationally according to a “data driven survey” conducted by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Guide to Military Friendly Schools®, and certified by Ernst and Young.
AAMU joined the distinguished group, although heavy competition for the 2014 list caused organizers to raise the already stringent criteria to a higher benchmark.
The distinction also means that AAMU “is among the elite” competing for military students. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace the nation's military personnel. Thanks to the diligent efforts of the Office of Veterans Affairs and Disability Services, led Sanoyia Williams, AAMU will be included in the 2014 Guide to Military Friendly Schools®, scheduled for publication later this month.
“AAMU has always exhibited a strong commitment to recruiting military students,” commented Dr. Andrew Hugine, Jr., president. “This honor only further compels us to revitalize the efforts aimed at creating a campus conducive to attracting and retaining military and veteran students.”
