Minot State retains military friendly school status
On Aug. 16, G.I. Jobs magazine named Minot State University as a Military Friendly School for the year 2011. After compiling research, survey results and other data, the magazine determined MSU is in the top 15 percent of the nation’s colleges, trade schools and universities that are doing the most to embrace America’s military members and veterans as students.
As a Military Friendly School, Minot State is listed in the magazine’s September 2010 Guide to Military Friendly Schools.
According to Sue Krebsbach, Minot State’s program coordinator at Minot Air Force Base, MSU believes in helping airmen attain their education goals.
"MSU and the United State Air Force are a team at Minot Air Force Base. The airmen are here defending us, and MSU is here to help them with a smooth transition into earning their education. MSU recognizes the military student as not being your typical campus student, therefore, the university goes out of its way to meet their military needs," Krebsbach said. "We receive many comments about how everyone from Minot State is so helpful and how the instructors seem to care about their students, which makes MSU deserving of this award."
A commemorative plaque hangs on the second level of the Education Center on the Minot Air Force Base, where Minot State offices have been located since 1960.
