FOND DU LAC,
Wis.

Victory Media, the premier
media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named
Marian University to the coveted Military Friendly Schools® list for the fifth
year in a row.

The
Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 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.

“Inclusion
on the list of Military Friendly Schools® shows Marian University’s commitment
to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean
Collins, vice president at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The
need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military
community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for
schools.” 

The
Military Friendly Schools® media and website, found at

www.militaryfriendlyschools.com

, feature the list, interactive tools and search
functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their
unique needs and preferences.  The 1,868
colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading
practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military
experience.  These schools have
world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic
accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services for those who
served.

The
Military Friendly Schools® list was compiled through extensive research and a
data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA
tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were
independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and
methodology established by Victory Media. Each year schools taking the survey
are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology,
criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory
Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country. Victory Media is a
service-disabled, veteran-owned small business that has been serving the
military community since 2001.
