Looking for a college that truly supports you as a Veteran? These schools go out of their way to help. The Military Times sent out a 150-question survey to evaluate schools best suited for Veterans.
At the University of South Florida (ranked #1 in the survey) the veterans center comes to you versus you going to them. "A lot of veterans won't ask for help," said Larry Braue, director of the USF Office of Veteran Success. "So we reach out regularly to them."
USF is tops among 4-year institutions followed by Rutgers and Syracuse University. Among online and nontraditional schools, the top spots went to Upper Iowa University, Central Texas College and Bellevue University, Nebraska. Nebraska's Central Community College, Clackamas Community College in Oregon and Pierce College in Washington state were the top 2-year schools.
More than four in five responding institutions have military or veterans clubs, and just under three-quarters of have a veterans center.
