NYIT Recognized as a Military Friendly School for 2013

Old Westbury, N.Y. (Sept. 17, 2012) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) has been named to the Military Friendly Schools® list for 2013 by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and to ensure their success on campus.

NYIT has dedicated staff to assist veteran students with admissions, military credit evaluation, financial aid, payments, and more. It also provides opportunities for veterans to be active on its campuses in New York through the NYIT Veterans Club, organizing events, fundraisers, and forums to share their personal experiences. Additionally, NYIT offers a variety of degree programs at multiple campuses, internships, experiential learning, and career-focused education, as well as experienced Career Services professionals to provide career assistance and actively pursue job opportunities for each student, among other programs for veterans.

“NYIT salutes our veterans for their service, and as such works closely with these students to create and foster a strong community that supports education and career goals,” said Troy Miller, Associate Dean, First Year Admissions and Scholarship at NYIT, and a veteran of the U.S. Army.     

Frank Annunziata, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps following five years of active duty, is studying computer and electrical engineering in the NYIT Class of 2014. President of the Veterans Club at NYIT-Manhattan, he noted that, as prospective students, veterans should research a college’s educational credentials as well as their military benefits, both financial and advisory. “I selected NYIT for its educational opportunities, the NYIT Yellow Ribbon Program, and the specialized representatives it has to help veterans,” he noted. 

The Military Friendly Schools® media and website, found at militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities, and schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
