Military Times has ranked Quinnipiac No. 1 in Connecticut and No. 10 nationally for “Best for Vets Colleges: The best schools for military students in 2020.”

“The support from Quinnipiac’s leadership, faculty, staff and peers toward our warrior-scholars is outstanding,” said Jason Burke, director of veteran and military affairs. “We strive to provide a holistic approach that not only supports our 200 plus veterans academically, but ensures that they feel a sense of camaraderie within the Quinnipiac community. That equates to very high retention and graduation rates, diversity and positive interaction. We are very proud of the dedication and mission focus of our veterans and military students."

Military Times surveyed hundreds of colleges and universities across the country and used their answers, combined with federal data, to rank schools in the areas of university culture, academic quality and outcomes, policies, student support, costs and financial aid.
