For the second year in a row, Chattahoochee Technical College has been designated as one of the nation’s top military-friendly schools by Victory Media, a leader in connecting the military community to educational and civilian employment opportunities.
Chattahoochee Tech was ranked number five in the nation in the large community college category of the 2019-2020 Military Friendly Schools list for its outstanding efforts to support Veterans, military service members and military service family members who are enrolled at the college.
“This achievement truly reflects the level of service we try to make available to approximately 400 military service members, past and present, who are currently enrolled at the college, as well as more than 380 military service family members currently taking courses,” said Chattahoochee Tech Veteran Services Coordinator Barry Munday. “The tremendous support of our college leadership, faculty and staff helped make this ranking possible.”
Now in its tenth year, the Military Friendly Schools list is determined annually based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and responses to data-driven surveys from participating institutions. Final ratings also involved an assessment of factors that included student retention, graduation and job placement rates.
The 2019-2020 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. This list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for military service members, veterans and their families.
