G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded the University of Central Arkansas the designation of Military Friendly School.
The 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students, according to G.I. Jobs.
“Being designated as a military-friendly school is a true honor. It tells us that people recognize our respect for and commitment to the men and women of our armed forces and their families,” said Brooks Walthall, UCA’s coordinator of veteran services. “We feel it is essential that we help lead the way in recognizing the sacrifices made by and for these individuals, and we consider it a privilege to count them as our students.”
UCA’s Office of Veteran Services helps soldiers and their families receive GI Bill benefits as well as help them with other sources of potential assistance and campus/community resources.
