To make the list, a school must rank in the top 20 percent nationwide. G.I. Jobs lists an 11 percent military enrollment, financial benefits like scholarships and the ability to deploy and return without losing financial aid, and veteran resources like counseling and social networking events, among the reasons Boise State made the cut.
A news release from Boise State lauded the ranking.
“With such a large population of active military and veterans, Boise State is consciously creating a campus culture that provides these service men and women, as well as their families, with the support and resources they need to be successful college students,” said Mara Affre, director of enrollment services at Boise State, who has responsibility for the university’s veteran outreach programs. “It is important to us as a university that their service to our country is recognized and rewarded in a way that demonstrates the Boise State community’s appreciation for their sacrifice.”
