THIBODAUX– G.I. Jobs magazine has named Nicholls State University a Military Friendly School for 2012 – an honor shared with 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide. The recognition stems from the efforts of Nicholls to recruit and retain active military and veteran students.
“Once again, we are honored to be recognized as a university that values our military students,” Courtney Cassard, director of enrollment services, said. “The Nicholls family is proud to welcome our nation’s defenders into the student body, and we are committed to helping them with their academic success.”
Members of the military – as well as veterans – can expect priority service when enrolling at Nicholls. Admissions criteria are exempted for veterans who have received an honorable discharge, and enrollees may register before the general student population.
Nicholls administrators have also identified a group of individual advisors to serve as veterans’ advocates. Veterans may consult with these faculty members for information, advice or understanding as they work their way through university rules and regulations.
For additional information about Nicholls’ services for veterans and active service members, call (985) 448-4507 or go to www.nicholls.edu/admission. In-depth information is available in the 2011 issue of “Voila!” – Nicholls’ annual magazine – downloadable at www.nicholls.edu/voila.
