Central Penn College announced today that it has earned the 2019–2020 Military Friendly® School designation for the fifth consecutive year. In addition, the college achieved Gold status, the second highest recognition given by Viqtory, a media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
“Central Penn College prides itself on being a military-friendly institution,” said Interim Dean, School of Business and Professional Studies, Ben Lipschutz, an army veteran and an advisor to the college’s Student Veterans of America organization. “We’re extremely pleased that the college has been recognized for five straight years.”
Currently, Central Penn College has 69 students who are either veterans or who are serving with the U.S. military or the National Guard.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. Nearly 1,700 schools participated in the survey with 766 earning the designation.
