K-STATE A TOP MILITARY-FRIENDLY UNIVERSITY FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR

MANHATTAN -- Military Advanced Education magazine has selected Kansas State University among the top schools for serving military members in 2008.

The magazine began honoring military-friendly colleges and universities in 2007, when K-State was first selected as one of the top 30 institutions nationwide. In 2008, the honoree number expanded to the top 60 institutions, with K-State again selected and featured in the magazine's December issue.

K-State has provided educational opportunities to military personnel and their families for more than 60 years through Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth, on campus and through distance education. K-State offers an Arabic language course at Fort Riley, combatives courses, SOCAD agreements, securities studies and adult education at Fort Leavenworth, and participation in GoArmyEd.

Also honored as a top institution was Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas, which collaborated with K-State to develop a 2+2 partnership in December. Through this partnership, students will be able to complete their first two years of course work at Central Texas and their second two years through K-State distance education to earn a bachelor's degree. Central Texas College is one of several institutions outside of Kansas that K-State has established as a 2+2 partner.
