With a mission of making life better for veterans and their spouses by setting the standard for higher education institutions to provide positive opportunities, Victory Media has released the 2018 Military Friendly® Schools list. Now in its 16th year, the Military Friendly® Schools list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies, veteran students, and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

“Lourdes University is proud to once again receive this prestigious designation from Victory Media. Our University welcomes and integrates members of the military and veterans into the campus. Our military and veteran students enjoy the small class sizes and quiet campus atmosphere,” says Major Gary Bentley, M.B.A., Lourdes University VA Certifying Official; Director of the Lourdes MBA Program; and Retired Executive Officer, 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard.

This marks the ninth consecutive year that Lourdes has received “Military-Friendly School” status by Victory Media. The university is pleased to participate in the following programs:

· Post-9/11 GI Bill
· Yellow Ribbon program
· Hero Scholarship for Ohio National Guard members
· Housing Scholarship for Army and Air Force ROTC members
· P-4 Community Partnership supporting Higher Degree Attainment with the 180th
