Military Times Ranks SUNY Cobleskill Top Four-Year SUNY School for Veterans

For the fourth consecutive year, Military Times is recognizing SUNY Cobleskill for its commitment to the education of military veterans, service members, and their families, naming SUNY Cobleskill to its “Best for Vets: Colleges 2019” list. Among four-year schools in the SUNY system the publication considered, Military Times ranks SUNY Cobleskill its best for veterans.

Military Times surveyed nearly 500 colleges and universities for this year’s rankings, placing SUNY Cobleskill number 53 among four-year schools. SUNY Cobleskill is one of the 40 highest-rated public four-year colleges and universities in the country for veterans, as well as one of the best four-year colleges in NY, placing third in the state. Military Times bases its rankings on a survey of current and former military students — as well as on a review of public data compiled by federal agencies — evaluating quality of student life and education.

“SUNY Cobleskill continues to maximize opportunities for student veterans, cultivating a culture of support and understanding,” says SUNY Cobleskill President Marion A. Terenzio. “We are proud to assist in the transition from military life to college life, and to ensure the success of our student veterans.”
