W&M lauded once again as 'military-friendly'

William & Mary has once again been listed among the country’s most military-friendly schools.

Military Advanced Education (MAE), a magazine for service members and veterans interested in using the Department of Defense’s education benefits, included the College in its 5th Annual Guide to America’s Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities. This is the second time that the College has been included on the list.

According to a press release from MAE, schools were selected for inclusion on the list based on numerous factors including on-campus assistance and support provided to military families.

Fourteen other Virginia colleges and universities also appear on the list, including Virginia Tech, Norfolk State University and Old Dominion University.

The honor comes just months after G.I. Jobs, a magazine targeted to personnel who are transitioning into civilian life, also included William & Mary on its own list of military friendly schools.
