  1. Walsh College Recognized as a Veteran-Friendly School

    For the third consecutive year, Walsh College has been named a Veteran-Friendly School – Gold Level by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA).

    The award formally recognizes the College’s commitment to supporting the needs of student veterans and dependents. The program promotes best practices by awarding levels of gold, silver, or bronze to institutions that offer veteran-specific services and programs.

    MVAA is a state government agency housed within the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. It connects U.S. Armed Forces veterans and their families to services and benefits throughout the state.

    “If you’re a veteran and considering furthering your education, come in and speak with us. We can help you better understand educational benefits, find community resources, and navigate state and federal support services,” Patrick Forystek, Walsh College’s veteran services coordinator.

    “I’m a Marine Corps veteran; I can relate to the struggles and the uncertainty that comes with transitioning from the military to a college campus. Walsh College is honored to provide veterans and servicemembers with one-on-one assistance.”

    Walsh College also made the list of Best for Vets: Business Schools 2016, by the Military Times, and meets the qualifying standards for Military Friendly® designation, which measures an organization’s commitment, effort, and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefits for the military community.
