Daemen College has been named for the 12th consecutive year as a Military Friendly School, a prestigious designation identifying the best colleges in the country for veterans. The 2021-22 Military Friendly Schools distinction is awarded to schools in recognition of their commitment and efforts to help veterans make the transition from military life to college and successful careers.
Institutions are evaluated using public data sources, survey responses from participating institutions, and student survey information. Final ratings are based on student retention, graduation rate, job placement, loan repayment and default rates, and degree advancement.
Consistently ranked as a top military friendly and veteran supportive college, Daemen coordinates its veteran services through the college’s Nancy Haberman Gacioch Center for Veterans. The center offers a place on campus where veterans, active duty service members, and military aligned students may study or connect with other students with military service.
“There are nearly 1.3 million men and women of uniform currently serving throughout the world. Daemen College recognizes the uniqueness of many of these students and of their desire to return to higher education. We understand that Veteran and/or Military Aligned Students (V/MAS) are oftentimes in need of more than just government-backed tuition breaks. A diverse and inclusive college community, medical and mental health services, scholarships, flexible academic schedules, and an academically supportive, pro-military on-campus culture are just a few of the extra things that make Daemen College a great choice for any military-affiliated student,” said F. Paul Muccigrosso II, Director, Veterans Services at Daemen.
