 TSU Named One of the 2013 Military Friendly Schools (428 hits)
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list recently was released by Victory Media and Texas Southern University has been named one of this year’s top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“We are so proud and honored to celebrate the announcement of our third award for being identified as a top 15% Military Friendly School,” says Veterans Affairs Coordinator, Taiwan Johnson.

Johnson goes on to say that, “Veterans offer their leadership training skills to colleges and universities such as TSU. These skills are brought back to campuses and are utilized to help develop and mentor younger students.”

TSU provides a supportive environment for veterans to help them transition back to civilian life. The TSU Student Veterans of America (TSUSVA) helps with this transition through peer support, understanding, healing in dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other combat injuries. This support group also seeks to help veterans re-acclimate into society through social and active community involvement to help them cope with real-time issues.
This year’s Military Friendly Schools ® list criteria incorporate a survey of over 3,000 actual student veterans. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at particular institutions based on peer reviews from current students. The 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.

“A school’s inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools ® shows commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and Director for G.I. Jobs
