LSU Shreveport Named as a Military Friendly School
November 09, 2010
LSU Shreveport has been named by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Military Friendly School for 2011. This honor ranks LSU Shreveport in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
Schools on this list are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students and are making it a priority to recruit students with military experience. Schools on the Military Friendly Schools list also offer additional benefits to student veterans such as on-campus veterans programs, credit for service, military spouse programs and more.
"We help military personnel, veterans and their dependents to better understand their GI Bill educational benefits and assist them in navigating the VA system to obtain those benefits. We also work with the Louisiana National Guard initiative to help guard members." Jeffrey Morlock, Assistant Director for Records Operations.
Having personal experience in the military is important to assisting veterans. "I know the process well because I have experienced it. I am retired military and I used the GI Bill to get my degree from LSUS. Since LSUS currently has over 160 enrolled students connected to the military, having this type of personal experience enables me to understand their needs and give them proper guidance." Jeffrey Morlock, Assistant Director for Records Operations.
According to G.I. Jobs magazine, LSU Shreveport's Military Friendly School designation was the result of years of research and a compilation of survey results and other data. "It is certainly an honor for LSUS to be designated as a military friendly school. Serving military students and their families as they strive to achieve their educational goals is something that is very important to the university." Mickey Diez, Dean of Enrollment Services and Registrar
