Costa Mesa, CA, August 19, 2015 – U.S. Veterans Magazine has named Vanguard University in its summer 2015 results for Best of the Best. The magazine links companies and government entities to qualified career and business candidates from the ranks of the nation’s veterans. The magazine also provides important veteran news, covering virtually every industry, business and profession.
U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM) polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for the 2015 Best of the Best evaluations. The annual review is an assessment of the nation’s employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions. These nonbiased studies are valuable resources for jobseekers, business owners, students, consumers, senior management, business associations, employment agencies and consumer groups.
The list named Top Veteran-Friendly Companies, Top Supplier Diversity Programs, Top VBOs and SDVBOs, Top Government & Law Enforcement Agencies, Top Veteran-Friendly Franchises and Top Veteran-Friendly Schools. Vanguard University was one of the only private, Christian universities on the West Coast that was named in this nationwide ranking by USVM.
“The Vanguard University veterans center is intentional in our services, relationships, and our holistic approach of education of our veterans,” said Brian Burlingame, veterans center coordinator. “Here, every veteran matters, and it far exceeds academic success. It’s a genuine compassion about who our students are as individuals, and making sure they succeed in life.“
Vanguard University’s program for veterans is specialized for individuals coming out of military service, with the goal of achieving a bachelor’s degree. Incoming veteran students may qualify for several GI Bill chapters, including The Post 9/11 GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon Program, The Montgomery GI Bill, the Survivors & Dependents Assistance Program, and other programs. With a staff that is skilled in serving veterans, resources such as the school’s counseling center, disability services, learning and tutoring center, writing center, and career center are offered to students, free of charge.
