Magazine says Olympic College is tops for veterans

BREMERTON — Olympic College was ranked as the top two-year college on the west coast for military veterans by Military Times Edge magazine.

More than 500 student veterans were surveyed in spring 2011 on what they consider the most important school services for vets. The factors they considered in selecting a college: academic accreditation, central veterans’ offices, and staff knowledgeable on veterans’ issues. Results of the survey informed the magazine’s rankings.

Also, for the past three years, Olympic College has designated a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs.
