      Widener Again Named to Victory Media's Military Friendly® Schools List

      Widener is among the 2017 Military Friendly® Schools

      Widener University has once again been named to the Military Friendly® Schools list by Victory Media. This is the seventh straight year that Widener has been named a Military Friendly® School, which indicates to service members and their families that the university offers a supportive learning environment and opportunities to find success as they pursue civilian careers.

      Widener is one of only 1,160 schools nationwide named to the 2017 list. To make the list, institutions are rated using scores from Victory Media's proprietary survey combined with the assessment of the institution's ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

      Widener participates in the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program and the Montgomery G.I. Bill® for all qualified veterans. U.S. military veterans who want to begin or continue their college education at Widener can do so with assistance from a designated veterans outreach coordinator who convenes a committee of university personnel to discuss how to best support Widener's veteran and military students.

      Veterans Memorial

      Honoring Our Military

      President Julie E. Wollman and PMC alumnus and retired Col. Tom Vossler place a wreath by the Veterans Memorial during the Main Campus Veterans Day Ceremony.

      The Military Friendly® designation reflects not only these specific efforts, but also the efforts of the entire campus community – individuals on all three campuses – to create a welcoming atmosphere for veteran and military students. Many showed their support of our nation's military by attending the Commonwealth Law Veterans Day Ceremony and the Main Campus Veterans Day Ceremony, led by Widener's Army ROTC Dauntless Battalion.

      The Main Campus Veterans Day Ceremony featured an address by Col. Tom Vossler, U.S. Army (Ret.) and 1968 graduate of Pennsylvania Military College, in addition to the ceremonial laying of the wreath by the Veterans Memorial in front of Old Main. The memorial honors alumni of Widener and PMC who lost their lives in combat.
