Elgin Community College recently was named a Military Friendly School for 2013 by G.I. Jobs magazine, one of the premier publications for people transitioning from the military to civilian life.
This is the second consecutive year the college has received the designation from the magazine, which reaches more than 75,000 military personnel worldwide and provides information on education, transition assistance and job opportunities.
"Veterans can rely on Elgin Community College as an institution that values their military experience and offers them the best education, value, and friendliness," said Anitra King, the college's career and veteran specialist.
G.I. Jobs ranked ECC in the top 20 percent of the more than 8,000 colleges and universities nationwide it surveyed to be designated as a Military Friendly School. As part of the designation, ECC will be included in the magazine's 2012 Guide to Military Friendly Schools and receive a listing online at militaryfriendlyschools.com.
ECC provides a number of resources for veterans, such as ensuring support for those who are disabled, counseling assistance, and financial aid and educational benefits assistance.
