G.I. Jobs magazine has ranked Kansas State University as one of the most military-friendly schools in the nation for 2010.
This means K-State is in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools. The university actively recruits military students and offers programs to meet their needs.
G.I. Jobs magazine is the second publication recently to recognize K-State for being military-friendly. Military Advanced Education magazine has ranked K-State among the top 60 institutions for 2009.
Some of the programs at K-State aimed at supporting military personnel include The Institute for the Health and Security of Military Families.
