Kent Columbiana, Trumbull Named Military Friendly Campuses

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – For the 10th year in a row, Kent State University has been named a Military Friendly School by Viqtory Media, with the Trumbull and Columbiana campuses each earning the designation.

In addition, the campus in Salem was named the No. 7 school among small public institutions.

The designation, also presented to the main Kent State campus and Kent State University at Stark, is awarded to schools based on student retention, job placement, loan repayment and transfer rates for student veterans.

“The Military Friendly designation is an indication that Kent State University continues to adhere to the highest national standards when it comes to serving our military connected population,” said Joshua Rider, director of Kent State’s Center for Adult and Veteran Services, in a news release. “It shows that we value them and their experiences. This is a clear reflection of the Kent State community’s continued support for our veterans, service members and their dependents.”

Viqtory Media, which publishes G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse magazines, offers a survey to 8,800 schools nationwide at no cost. EY – formerly Ernst & Young – independently reviews the surveys and scoring methodology.

Among the other Ohio schools to receive the Military Friendly School recognition are Youngstown State University, Ohio University, Cuyahoga Community College and Baldwin Wallace University. A full list of recipients can be found here.
