VITERBO UNIVERSITY NAMED TO G.I. JOBS LIST OF MILITARY FRIENDLY SCHOOLS 

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University has been named to G.I. Jobs 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools, which recognizes the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students.

G.I. Jobs asks more than 12,000 schools to participate in their annual survey, which helps veteran students find schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

Viterbo University offers veteran students a wide variety of services including an Academic Resource Center to promote academic success and a career services office to help them find employment. The university employs a Veteran Services Student Point of Contact, veteran and student Scott Nieman, whose job is to help veterans transition to life in college. University chaplain Fr. Conrad Targonski served in the Marine Corps for 22 years and is a friend, confidant, and mentor to military and veteran students.

“I am grateful for the staff at Viterbo University as they made the transition of going back to school as easy and comfortable as possible,” said veteran student Robert Jobe. “The staff were eager to answer all of my questions. They worked with me so I was able to understand all of my VA benefits and how to apply for any additional financial aid I needed. I would encourage any veterans who are considering higher education to attend Viterbo University.”
