In a recent survey of over 12,000 schools, Northeastern Junior College (NJC) has been named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business and publisher of GI Jobs and Guide to the Military. This honor places NJC in the top 15% of schools nationwide.
Headquartered in Coraopolis, PA, Victory Media develops various communications materials each year, including a directory that is accessed by thousands of veterans and active military each year. Northeastern has strived to help veterans return to school and as recent as 2013, had a summer accelerated wind training institute which had special features that would allow a military veteran, especially one who had already received extensive training in electricity, to go through the five week program and be job ready in the wind farm industry. This program was funded with Department of Local Affairs and was a joint effort between Northeastern and the Colorado Work Force Center.
The 2014 Military Friendly Schools list honors the colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their advanced education success.
