Everett Community College Named a Military Friendly School
EVERETT, WA – Everett Community College has been named a "Military Friendly School," ranking it among the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools serving active duty military personal, veterans and military families.
G.I. Jobs magazine selected EvCC for its 2012 Military Friendly Schools list after evaluating more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
EvCC serves more than 500 military veterans and active duty military personnel per quarter through its Veterans Office. EvCC also has a student-run Veterans Club and a Veterans Lounge with a study area and computers.
"Everett Community College has enthusiastically welcomed veterans and active duty military personnel for 70 years and is proud to be recognized for supporting students who have served their country," said EvCC Veterans Office program manager Arlene Cahoon.
Rating criteria for G.I Jobs included a survey of student veterans, the accessibility of veterans’ services on campus and the presence of on-campus veterans’ activities such as student clubs. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools.
Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board including educators from schools from across the country.
