Kent State Named Military Friendly School Eleventh Year in a Row

Kent State was named a military friendly school by G.I. Jobs for the eleventh year in a row, most recently earning the bronze designation. In addition, Kent State University regional campuses at Ashtabula, Tuscarawas, and Trumbull have also received military friendly honors.

G.I. Jobs is a magazine dedicated to offering helpful resources and tips to those transitioning from military service to civilian life. The magazine determines and publishes annually the top 20 percent of schools, universities, and trade schools that are military friendly.
