LSU Eunice Named Military Friendly

EUNICE – Louisiana State University Eunice has been named to G.I. Jobs Magazine's 2011 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that do the most to accommodate America's active-duty military and veteran students. Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, and academic accreditations.

LSU Eunice provides full tuition benefits to qualifying post-9/11 active duty service members, veterans and eligible dependents of military personnel under the federal government’s GI Bill.

With over 90 students attending LSU Eunice who are considered veterans, active duty military or military personnel dependants, the university has most definitely become one of the top schools in the region in educating our military.

Derek Blumke, president of Student Veterans of America and a member of the list’s Academic Advisory Board, says the list is indispensable “in letting veterans know which schools will offer them the greatest opportunity, flexibility and overall experience. It’s especially important now with so many schools competing for military students.”

G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Their website, at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, features interactive tools and search functionality to assist military veterans in choosing schools that best meet their personal educational needs.
