Dakota Wesleyan University has been named a Bronze Military Friendly® School for 2018.

Military Friendly® ratings by Victory Media began in 2003 as an advocacy program to encourage organizations and schools to invest in veteran recruitment, retention and education. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.

“We’re very proud of our students’ and alumni’s military service and hope to make the process easier for those beginning school for the first time or coming back to school after active duty,” said Fredel Thomas, dean of admissions and marketing at DWU.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated comparing academic policies and compliance; admissions and orientation; culture and commitment; financial aid and assistance; graduation and career; and military student support and retention.
