CGCC awarded military friendly designation

Chandler-Gilbert Community College has been named to the 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list by Victory Media, publisher of GI Jobs magazine, a resource for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.

The 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

With the utmost respect for its student veterans, CGCC provides a variety of on-campus resources to assist with their college life transition. In addition to processing of their GI Bill benefits, resources include:

  • The Student Veterans Organization (SVO), which hosts on-going activities for veterans throughout the school year to help veterans build a strong social and support network on-campus. 
  • An annual Veterans Resource Expo, which showcases college and community veteran resources as well as thanks veterans for their service. This year's event will take place on November 7 at CGCC's Williams Campus. 
  • Two veteran student lounges which are in the works, one in the new Coyote Center on the Pecos campus, the other to open in the near future on the Williams campus.
  • Monthly veterans e-newsletters which are sent out to student veterans informing them about their VA benefits and alerting them to opportunities and resources available to them.

For more information about CGCC's resources for veterans, please contact the Veterans Services office at 480.726.4122.
