YSU ranked among universities 'Best for Vets'

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Youngstown State University has been named a “Best for Vets: College 2017” by Military Times.

The rankings are based on the magazine’s school-by-school survey of veteran and military student offerings and rates of academic achievement.

More than 500 colleges and universities took part in this year’s survey; YSU is one of 175 schools to be recognized.

The survey asks colleges and universities to document an array of services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus.

Below are the rankings for universities in Ohio:

  • 46 Bowling Green State University
  • 90 John Carroll University
  • 104 The Ohio State University
  • 110 The University of Akron
  • 114 Youngstown State University
  • 122 The University of Toledo
  • 125 Wright State University

YSU has been named a Military Friendly School for several years by G.I. Jobs magazine.

YSU established the Office of Veteran Affairs in 2009 to assist students who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces in attaining their educational goals.

A new $1.25 million YSU Veterans Resource Center opened in 2014 to help improve and expand services to military veterans and service members transitioning to student life at YSU.
