La Roche College Named Military Friendly School

 Military Designation 2019 SealPITTSBURGH, Jan. 24, 2019 – La Roche University earned the 2019 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs SM and Military Spouse.

The list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members and their families each year, helping veterans select the best college, university or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career. La Roche has been consecutively named a Military Friendly School since Victory Media’s publication of the list in 2009.

“We welcome all veterans, military students and their dependents to begin or complete their education at La Roche. The University proudly supports its veterans and military students, and we offer credit for their services,” said Vice President for Enrollment Management Chip Weisgerber, Ph.D.

Military and veteran students also find support through the Veterans Organization. Established in 2013, the organization gives veterans the opportunity to meet each other, get involved on campus and receive support.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. This year 766 schools earned this prestigious designation.
