Albany – State University of
New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher today congratulated 23 SUNY colleges and
universities on being named “military friendly” by a top-rated national
military publication, G.I. Jobs Magazine.
“It comes as no surprise that
so many SUNY colleges and universities have again made the military friendly
list for 2012,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “With 64 campuses that span the higher
education spectrum and offer more than 7,500 degree and certificate programs,
military personnel who are transitioning from service to civilian careers are
bound to find opportunity and success at SUNY, and we are pleased to welcome
them as both new and returning students.”
G.I. Jobs Magazine is the premier publication for men and women who
are transitioning from military to civilian life. It provides education,
transition assistance, and job opportunities.
