LSUA works hard to provide services for its military students and those efforts have paid off by being named a Military Friendly School.

Louisiana State University at Alexandria is proud to announce that it has been named to the coveted Military Friendly Schools List by Victory Media.  The 2014 Military Friendly Schools List honors the top 20 percent of 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 success on campus. 

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools shows LSUA’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. 

LSUA has numerous programs geared toward students who are active duty military, National Guard, reserve and veterans.  These programs include: Delta Chi Kappa student association, “Veterans Support” webpages that provide links to military web sites, Lunch and Learn programs with a veterans focus, LSUA Veterans Facebook page, programs in support of spouses and family of veterans and best practices collaboration with area veterans organizations.

The university will also be honoring its military students with the dedication of a Veterans Lounge on September 17. This event will coincide with other Constitution Day events scheduled to take place on campus.  Nicknamed “Headquarters”, the lounge is a special place where students can study, relax, and chill with their buddies. 

“Our veterans, active duty military, National Guard, and reserve students and their family deserve our very best.  Being nationally recognized as a military friendly school is one measure of LSUA’s commitment,” says LSUA Academic Advisor Robert Tillie. 

The complete list of military friendly schools can be found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com.  The 1,868 colleges, universities, and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices and recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
