Penn State Saluted for Serving Vets

November 11, 2013 at 6:07 pm 3 comments

Another day, another ranking for Penn Staters to be proud of.

Especially on Veterans Day.

This one comes courtesy of U.S. News & World Report, which puts Penn State No. 1 in its new ranking of “Best Colleges for Veterans.” The nationwide survey lists 234 schools graded on everything from graduation rates and faculty resources to participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a federal initiative that makes college more affordable for vets. At a time when “saluting the vets” often seems more about words than actions, and when many veterans still struggle to find jobs on their return to civilian life, it’s encouraging to see the many tangible ways Penn State works to give current and former military members a chance to succeed.
