SUNY Cobleskill Ranks Among “Best for Vets” for Second Year

SUNY Cobleskill has been named to Military Times’ “Best for Vets: Colleges 2017” rankings for the second consecutive year.

This exclusive distinction recognizes SUNY Cobleskill for its commitment to educating and providing opportunities to America’s veterans, service members and families.

The eighth annual rankings, announced Nov. 1, are based on Military Times’ comprehensive survey of veteran and military student offerings and rates of academic achievement at more than 500 colleges across the country.

“SUNY Cobleskill’s continued ‘Best of Vets’ recognition is a testament to the veteran-friendly culture that the College has cultivated over the years,” said Matthew LaLonde, Director of Judicial and Veteran Affairs at SUNY Cobleskill. “Each year SUNY Cobleskill 2017_bfv_colleges-2has strived to enhance the veteran services we provide, to assist student veterans with the
transition from military to college life, and ensure academic and personal success.”  

SUNY Cobleskill is recognized as a Military Friendly School and Military Spouse Friendly School by G.I. Jobs. It is also a member of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges and the Yellow Ribbon Program, which helps make higher education more affordable for veterans. This past year, SUNY Cobleskill launched its new Student Veteran Resource Center dedicated to serving student veterans and active duty service members.

“Best for Vets: Colleges 2017” is an editorially independent survey that asks colleges and universities to document the services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on campus. The institutions were evaluated in several categories, with university culture and academic outcomes bearing the most weight.

Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database.
