DIAMOND BAR, Calif., September 15, 2011 – G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded California Intercontinental University (CALUNIVERSITY) the designation of Military Friendly School.

In its effort to help student veterans find the right school, G.I. Jobs incorporated a survey of student veterans for the first time. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at a particular institution based on peer reviews from current students. Marshall J. Cowell, a current DBA student in Caluniversity’s Global business and Leadership program, has also been profiled by G.I. Jobs, and his interview can been found on the Military Friendly Schools website.
The 2012 list of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and a data driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide. Michael Dakduk, Executive Director for the Student Veterans of America noted, “The Military Friendly Schools list is the go-to resource for prospective student veterans searching for schools that provide the right overall experience. Nothing is more compelling than actual feedback from current student veterans.”
Service members and veterans can also meet individual student veterans from the various schools virtually on the site to learn more about personal school decisions and the transition from the military to an academic environment.
