Baker University has again been named a military-friendly university for veterans earning a college degree on the strength of the benefits it offers veterans, according to Military Friendly Schools. The designation means the university is a good option for veterans and sets an example for other schools.
“It is our honor to serve our students who are veterans and those who are active duty and provide them with the guidance they need to navigate their educational journey,” said Dr. Sharon Zoellner, dean of School of Education and School of Professional and Graduate Studies. “Our military students are dedicated to their studies while maintaining and balancing a demanding life outside of school. It’s the least we can do to support our veterans.”
In addition to academic advisors, Baker employs a dedicated certifying official, who serves as a liaison between the university and the Department of Veterans affairs. He helps process the VA forms required for educational benefits and certifies enrollment at Baker University to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
No one appreciates a university’s VA representatives more than Mike Logan. The army veteran is studying business leadership at Baker. He credits Baker’s VA representatives for helping him maneuver the complicated processes and forms the military requires servicemen to complete to enroll in a university program.
“If a veteran wants to attend an adult-oriented program and wants to deal with a VA rep who is on top of everything, they don’t need to look any further than Baker and their VA reps,” Logan said. “At Baker, you’re not a number. They know your name and return your phone calls and emails quickly.”
