“From the hundreds of institutions reviewed in each region, we selected these colleges and universities primarily for their excellent academic programs,” notes Robert Franek, senior vice president of publishing for Princeton Review. “We also take into account what students attending the schools reported to us about their campus experience.”
For the second consecutive year, Lourdes has also been named a Military Friendly School by GI Jobs Magazine. Lourdes was selected for the veteran-friendly academic, financial and student services offered at the college. According to GI Jobs, Lourdes ranked “in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.”
“We are thrilled to receive this honor,” says Kimberly Grieve, assistant vice president of student life and dean of students. “As an institution that prides itself on personalized attention, values-centered learning and quality academics, Lourdes is proud to be recognized by GI Jobs for its commitment to our country’s service men and women.”
As a Military Friendly campus, Lourdes offers the following services to assist veterans and service men and women: a Veteran Affairs Center, the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, a Lourdes College Ohio National Guard “Hero” Scholarship, a Lourdes College ROTC Housing Scholarship and an Air Force ROTC Scholarship for Nursing Students.
