Alderson Broaddus University Named a Military Friendly School

Posted: Updated:

An area university has been recognized as being one of the most military friendly in the country.

Alderson Broaddus University has been added to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media.

The company surveys colleges nationwide to help veterans after they return from military service.

University staff said they're especially glad to have earned this recognition.

"We're sort of honored actually to get this, because we wanted to give back to the veterans for their education. A lot of times coming back after their deployments and terms of service are done, it is sort of a hard transition to move into civilian life," said Zachary Ward, of Alderson Broaddus University.

Only the top 15 percent of schools in the country make it onto the list each year.

Victory Media also recently named Davis and Elkins College a "military friendly" school.
