Elizabeth City State University cares for military veterans so when the Military Times set out to rank the top 20 Best Bet for Vets schools, it should come as no surprise that ECSU was ranked 17th.
According to the Military Times, universities across the country were asked to fill out “a rigorous survey” that included 150 questions. The aim of those questions was to understand the nature of the institution’s operations involving current and former service members, and their families.
Military Times evaluated the responses of 175 universities, factored in information from Veterans Affairs and the Defense Department, as well as information from the College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. Institutions were evaluated based on university culture, academic quality, student support, academic policies, and cost and financial aid.
ECSU stepped up to actively work with military veterans, and active service members and their families last year with the opening of the Veterans Center. According to center director Tim Freeman, the mission of the center is to serve the men and women who have served the nation.
