St. Norbert College has been selected as a G.I. Jobs Military Friendly School. The list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students. The 2012 Military-Friendly School list can be found at http://www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/2012 list.

Since 1936, the St. Norbert College military science program has commissioned both active duty and reserve component officers for our nation's defense. Over 970 college students have graduated from St. Norbert's ROTC program. Eleven graduates have attained the rank of general during their military careers and many others have attained the rank of colonel. (http://www.snc.edu/militaryscience/graduates.html). Few schools offering ROTC can make such a claim.

A full story and detailed list of Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools and on a poster, both of which will be distributed to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel this month.

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.
