Potomac State Receives 2015 Military Friendly Schools Designation

Potomac State College (PSC) of West Virginia University is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2015 Military Friendly Schools list for a second consecutive year by Victory Media, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.

Military FriendlyThis national designation allows Potomac State College to continue using the Military Friendly Schools logo on its website, in the College’s recruitment materials and in its advertising.

In recent years, the College has introduced a number of veteran-specific initiatives including: recognizing graduating veterans with red, white and blue cords during commencement and designating campus parking spaces for military service members and veterans only. This year, the College is establishing a special meeting area on campus for military service and veteran students to congregate, study and enjoy some down time in between classes.

“We’re committed to provide a supportive environment for our military students by continuing to enhance specific military friendly amenities at our College” said PSC President Leonard Colelli. “Our student veterans informed us of this need and we have responded in kind. We recognize the dedicated service and sacrifices our student veterans have made for our country and want to do all we can to assist them in the achievement of their academic and career goals.” 

The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences.
