Lindenwood University has been named a “military friendly” school for 2011 by G.I. Jobs Magazine, an honor the magazine states is given to only 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide.
The designation, which is based on research, surveys, and other data, recognizes policies and practices to recruit and retain students who are members of the U.S. military or are veterans of the military. The results will be published in the magazine’s 2011 Guide to Military Friendly Schools in September.
“I am very proud to be a part of Lindenwood University because of the dedication to our servicemen and servicewomen and their families,” said Mike Elam, Lindenwood’s military recruiter and counselor. “The policies and procedures set forth to assist the current and retired military are just a minor recognition of the sacrifices they and their families have made for our country.”
