K-State recognized as military-friendly school

Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing

Kansas State University continues to be recognized as a school that is friendly for both military members and military spouses.

The Military Friendly Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources from more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and responses to the Military Friendly Schools survey.

K-State received a Gold Award designation as a Military Friendly School in March 2023 and recently ranked No. 6 as a Military Spouse Friendly School in the Tier 1 research institution category. The results will be published in the October issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.

"As the first functioning land-grant university, Kansas State has served military-connected students since 1863," said Dominic Barnes, Fort Riley and military student services coordinator at K-State. "We proudly host the largest military-connected student population in the state of Kansas. This designation highlights our traditions and future in service to those who have served."
