(Gloucester Township, NJ) – Camden County College has earned the 2018-2019 Military Friendly Schools designation. Each year, institutions across the country are identified as top choices for providing post-secondary education to veterans and their spouses.
“Camden County College takes its commitment to our nation’s veterans and service members seriously, so we are proud to be officially recognized as a Military Friendly School,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Edward McDonnell, liaison to Camden County College. “Camden County College is one of the largest, most affordable and comprehensive community colleges in the region and is a vital resource for transfer education, workforce training and cultural events.”
The Military Friendly Schools list is created each year by the VIQTORY organization based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and responses to the Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions. The 2019-2020 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine. The list can also be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
Camden County College President Donald Borden spoke about the college’s Veterans Service Center dedicated to assisting veteran students.
