“Today is a proud day for Syracuse University,” says Chancellor Kent Syverud.
Military Times has named Syracuse University the #1 private school in the country and #3 overall for veterans and their families. The University has been working tirelessly the past two years in order to create a campus community in support of the veterans and their families. As a result, veteran and military connected enrollment has doubled during this period.
The ranking is an independent news project that evaluates many factors to make sure that colleges and universities are a good fit for military and veterans. More then 500 colleges took part in this year’s survey, which asks schools to document services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties.
This is just the beginning for the University. They will be furthering their commitment to veterans through the construction of the first ever National Veterans Complex.
