Texas Tech University was named a Military Friendly School for the fourth straight year by G.I. Jobs Magazine. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace America's military service members.

Juan Munoz, senior vice president of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement said in press release,

"Texas Tech is proud to be recognized for a fourth consecutive year as a military friendly campus. The number of veterans and military dependents continues to increase at our university because of its pervasive patriotism and world class education."

Texas Tech hosts a veteran specific website, a VA office and the Military Veterans Programs unit within the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.

Of the schools polled, only 1,739 were designated Military Friendly.
