MCC Makes list of military friendly colleges.

Thanks to Middlesex Community College’s Veterans Resource Center, Veterans Advisory Board and other special veterans services, MCC has been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs for the second year in a row.

The 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools honors the top 15 percent of U.S. colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools.

“At Middlesex, we pride ourselves in working to support all students, and we believe certain populations need some extra support,  said Pamela Flaherty, MCC Dean of Students. “Under the direction of Burlington’s Richard Reppucci, a Vietnam veteran, we have grown our Veterans’ services on both the Bedford and Lowell campus through our two thriving Veterans Resource Centers,” she said.

“Thanks to a generous three-year grant from the Ciccolo Foundation, these centers allow us to provide a network to connect and help veterans, active-duty members, and their families,” Flaherty continued. “We provide the internal and external support and resources our military students need to achieve their individual goals and continue their educations.”

The List of Military Friendly Schools was compiled by G.I. Jobs, an online magazine that polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide.
