Military Times has
once again named Northern Arizona University among its Best for Vets: Colleges
It’s the second year that the respected armed forces
newsmagazine ranked NAU as the top school for veterans not just in Arizona but
for the entire Southwest region.
NAU is ranked 27th out of 120 top schools. Last year, NAU
was ranked 36th.
“I know what it means to be
truly veteran friendly,” says Jordan Sherwood, a Marine Corps veteran and a
Public Administration student. “Northern Arizona University not only hits the
mark, but they lead the way in educating our nation’s service members.”
Academic rigor greatly impacted this year’s Military Times rankings. Other
considerations were percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, service
member enrollment and programs, student retention and graduation rates, student
loan default rates and student-faculty ratio.
