KSU saluted for military student affairs

By The Mercury

Kansas State University is getting another salute from Military Advanced Education, which has ranked the university as a top military-friendly institution for soldiers and their families for a fifth consecutive year.

The university continues to be on Military Advance Education’s list of top military-friendly institutions — and a top choice for soldiers studying at a distance — because of its reputation for quality programs and services that meet soldiers’ unique needs, said Ruth Stanley, military student services coordinator and academic adviser in the university’s Division of Continuing Education. Last year about 2,000 military-related students enrolled in Kansas State University courses.

Many soldiers decide to continue taking courses at Kansas State University even after being deployed or stationed elsewhere in the nation, Stanley said. The relationship they develop with their military adviser plays a large role in that decision.
