The Military Friendly® Schools award sets the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. More than 8,800 schools nationwide were evaluated and only 766 schools earned designation.
“Our Veterans Resource Center team is honored to be recognized as one of the leading military serving colleges in the nation,” said Lorenzo Harmon, director of the Veterans Resource Center. This is a testament of Norco College’s commitment to our military servicemen and women.”
