Honoring and Giving Back To Those Who Served Our Country

from the SUNY Big Ideas Blog on 11/10/16 –  Veterans Day is a day in which we take time to thank all those who served our country with our armed forces through the years. Their dedication and fearlessness are traits that cannot be overlooked and should be recognized by all who enjoy daily freedoms in whatever it is they do. In higher education, it is our responsibility to offer these returning veterans a chance to re-assimilate to public life and earn the skills and education necessary to do so successfully.

SUNY schools have lots to offer those that served in the armed forces. Each year, Military Times magazine compiles an annual “Best for Vets” college list to recognize the institutions that provide exceptional service and opportunity to military veterans. These include financial assistance, academic guidance and assistance, and even the comfort of the environment to help the adjustment back to civilian life. For those reasons, eight SUNY schools made it to the 2017 list of Best Colleges for Veterans.
