CSC among 'Best for Vets'

November 21, 2011

Chadron State College continues to gain national recognition for outstanding service to veterans and active military personnel.

Earlier this month, CSC claimed the No. 23 spot on Military Times Edge magazine’s Best for Vets list of four-year colleges. The national ranking, based on a survey by the magazine, considers criteria that student veterans find most important.

“I am pleased that CSC has received this recognition from Military Times Edge,” said Dr. Janie Park, CSC president. “As an institution of higher education, it is important that we strive to serve the people who have defended, and continue to defend, the freedoms that Americans enjoy.”

CSC earned marks for affordability, with costs below the GI Bill cap. The institution also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for tuition assistance, and scored in the survey for having an office for veterans services and accepting credits recommended by the American Council on Education.

Earlier this fall, CSC was among 19 Nebraska schools to the G.I. Jobs’ 2012 list of military-friendly colleges and universities. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools “which are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.”
