TRENTON, N.J. – Thomas Edison State College has recently been recognized as one of the top institutions in the country in serving members of the U.S. military and veterans by three publications that rank institutions that serve military students.

The college was again named to Military Advanced Education magazine’s “Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities.” The 2014 guide examines how institutions serve active duty military, veterans, and their spouses and dependents through support services, flexibility, financial assistance and military culture. This year’s guide will be published in the magazine’s December 2013 issue and online.

“Thomas Edison State College has been providing specialized educational opportunities for our U.S. military and veterans for more than 40 years,” said Dr. George A. Pruitt, president of Thomas Edison State College. “We are proud to have built our academic programs around the unique needs of the brave men and women who protect our freedoms and enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals.”

In addition, the college was named to Victory Media’s "Military Friendly Schools®" list. The 2014 list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace American’s military service members, veterans and spouses and ensuring their success on campus.
