Georgia Regents University has been
recognized as a 2014 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, a global
military media firm.
GRU ranks among the top 15 percent of institutions
doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans and
spouses as students and ensure their success on campus, according to Victory Media.
"Providing our military
students and families with the support they need to succeed academically is
essential," said Roman Cibirka, Vice Provost at GRU. "We are extremely honored
to have been recognized for our efforts."
military-friendly initiatives include the development of GRU's Military
Resource Center, a one-stop-shop for service members who wish to enroll at the
university. The center assists military members, veterans and family members
in processing veteran affairs benefits and helps them transition into the
college environment. The center will hold its grand opening at 2 p.m. Sept. 25 in Washington Hall, Room 233 on the Summerville Campus.
"To have been
selected as a military-friendly school is truly an honor, and we continually
strive to expand and improve our services to our military, our veterans and
their families," said Carol Giardina, director of GRU's Office of Military and
Victory Media, a
veteran-owned business and publisher of G.I. Jobs and the Guide to Military
Friendly Schools, surveyed more than 12,000 schools for this research. For the
