As a Military Friendly School, Xavier will be included with a basic listing in the Guide to Military Friendly Schools being published in September. More than 8 million military members and veterans are seeking a college, and this award recognizes Xavier’s commitment to educating the nation’s most deserving heroes.
“Clearly you have an interest in recruiting military students,” says publisher Rich McCormack. “And I urge you to continue your already stellar efforts improving the policies, efforts and results used to recruit and retain military and veteran students.”
