Keystone College selected as one of the nation’s top military friendly schools

Feb 11, 2020

Military FriendlyLa Plume, Pa. – Keystone College has been included on a national list of Military Friendly Schools, ranking among the top colleges, universities, and trade schools in the nation that are doing the most to recruit and retain students with military experience.

The 2020-2021 list was released recently by G.I. Jobs magazine published by “Viqtory Media,” a veteran-owned business based in Pittsburgh, Pa.

The selection of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey during which G.I. Jobs polled colleges and universities nationwide. Methodology and criteria were developed with the assistance of a national advisory committee consisting of educators and employers. Keystone College has been selected for the honor multiple times in recent years.

““Throughout our history, Keystone has been especially attentive to providing a quality education to the men and women who serve our nation. That is why we are once again honored to be included as a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine.”

Keystone College President Tracy L. Brundage, Ph.D.

“Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the military community as a whole,” said Military Friendly’s National Director Josh Rosen.

The complete list of military friendly schools will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
