Baruch College Designated a 2019 Military Friendly School
January 30, 2019
Baruch College was named a 2019-20 military friendly school by Viqtory Media, the originator of the longest-running survey that evaluates college and university investments in serving military and veteran students.
The “Military Friendly School” designation was given to 766 schools in the United States. This recognition measures Baruch’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful opportunity for the military community.
Art King, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students at Baruch College, said, “Our institution is dedicated to supporting all the men and women and we welcome their skills and life experience into our academic environment. We remain committed to helping military personnel and veterans transition and thrive for academic and career success.”
As of fall 2018, there are 156 veterans and military family members at Baruch College.
Strategic Location to Campus Culture
According to Military Friendly’s profile of the College, “Baruch is strategically located for Reservists, National Guard personnel, and Veterans. It is adjacent to the 69th Armory, a short walk to the VA Hospital, and a mile from The Soldier, Sailor and Airmen Club. Student Veterans choose Baruch for its excellent academic programs, competitive internship and career opportunities, and close-knit campus culture.”
This “military friendly” designation follows a just-released ranking from College Factual where Baruch was among the “Best Colleges for Veterans.”
Now in its tenth year, the Military Friendly School methodology evaluated institutions using public data sources and responses from school-completed surveys. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds in a number of areas, including rates on student retention, graduation, and job placements.
