BGSU continues trend of being ‘Best for Vets’

BOWLING GREEN, O.—Bowling Green State University remains one of the top academic choices in Ohio and the country for veterans and active duty military personnel.

Military Times ranked BGSU 25th out of 125 four-year schools, outranking all other Ohio universities, in its “Best for Vets: Colleges 2016” edition. "Best for Vets" is considered the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and their rates of academic achievement.  

Military Times’ survey asks colleges and universities to meticulously document a tremendous 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. Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three U.S. Department of Education sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database.

BGSU was also recognized by Military Advanced Education in its Top Schools 2016 list and is included in Military Friendly’s 2016 school list as well.

“BGSU is committed to making the transition from military life to college career as seamless and stress-free as possible,” said Barbara Henry, assistant vice president for nontraditional and military student services. “Our active duty and veteran students have a ‘one-stop shop’ to get all their questions answered and the support they need to be successful.”
