MilitaryFriendlySchoolsHOPKINSVILLE, KY (9/19/12) - Hopkinsville Community College (HCC) has been named as a Military Friendly School by Victory Media for the fourth consecutive year. The 2013 Military Friendly Schoolslist honors the top 15 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.

“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows HCC’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools,” said Sean.

The Military Friendly School’s media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their unique needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience. These schools have world-class programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served.

Hopkinsville Community College is unique in the fact that it has a campus housed on the Fort Campbell Army Base. More than one in three HCC students are active duty, veteran or a military family member. “HCC’s mission in regard to the military student is to serve those who serve. Since we have a campus at Fort Campbell, we do have high touch with the military. However, all of HCC’s locations provide excellent service to military students and their families,” said Allisha Lee, HCC Fort Campbell Campus director. “The military population has unique needs and requirements that our college truly understands.”

In an effort to provide another aspect of service to the military student, HCC launched a Veterans Program with resource facilities at both Hopkinsville and Fort Campbell Campuses.

HCC President Jim Selbe has outlined the college’s 50-year vision with the military as one of the college’s main areas of focus with a vision of becoming a national leader in serving the military student.
