Nazareth College is honored to be a Military-Friendly School for 2014. The competitive list ranks Nazareth in the top 15% of colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide committed to helping veteran-students make the challenging transitions from military to academic life. The honor comes after a data driven survey of more than 12-thousand schools administered by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business and publisher of G.I. Jobs and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools.
"We're proud of the fact that once again the hard work of our faculty, staff and administration has led to Nazareth College being named to the list of top schools in the country for our military, veterans and their families,” said Jeremy Bagley, coordinator of veteran student enrollment and support services. “This isn't just an honor for our college, but another example of how the Rochester community is really one of the top areas in the country for veterans reintegration. Without full campus buy-in and our community partners - we don't make these lists. It's a total team effort."
Nazareth maintains a strong commitment to its veteran students with multiple resources, such as special grants to be used toward tuition and fees and help finding internships with vet-friendly businesses and organizations. The College’s office of veterans’ affairs provides veteran students with assistance in different areas such as figuring out complicated financial aid packages or talking about the difficulties of transitioning from the military to a classroom setting.
Founded in 1924, Nazareth College is located on a close-knit, suburban campus in the dynamic, metropolitan region of Rochester, N.Y. The College offers challenging academic programs in the liberal arts and sciences and professional programs in health and human services, education, and management. Nazareth's strong cultures of service and community prepare students to be successful professionals and engaged citizens. The College enrolls approximately 2,000 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students.
