U.S. News and World Report names Penn State top national university for veterans

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Today (Nov. 11) U.S. News and World Report released its Best Colleges for Veterans rankings, citing Penn State's University Park campus as No. 1 among National Universities. 

U.S. News cited the University's military veterans benefit of priority registration for classes beginning with the spring 2014 semester, as well as the University's Office of Veterans Programs assistance with benefits, enrollment and career services.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment and one we have worked hard to foster. Our veterans deserve our support and assistance every day," said Penn State President Rodney Erickson. "Penn State's involvement with the military began more than 150 years ago through our charter and we have continued this extraordinary relationship with servicemen and servicewomen from all branches. It's truly a point of pride that we are able to educate these students both on campus and through our World Campus. They deserve nothing less."
