Texas Tech and Angelo State Receive Military Times Best for Vets Recognition

November 6, 2018 | Texas Tech & Angelo State

The Texas Tech University System and its component universities are dedicated to helping veterans and their families achieve academic, personal and professional success. Recently Texas Tech University and Angelo State University were recognized on the 2019 Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges rankings.

Texas Tech was honored by Military Times for the seventh straight year while Angelo State received recognition for the sixth consecutive year.

The rankings, based on the results of Military Times’ annual survey, offer the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement. Public data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three U.S. Department of Education sources – the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Guide Database – are also factors considered in the rankings.

Texas Tech is consistently recognized for its efforts in serving military and veteran members and their families. Texas Tech has been named a Military Friendly School each year since 2010, including a 2018-19 Top 10 designation, the highest of the recognition’s available.

Angelo State ranked No. 16 nationally among the 137 four-year institutions on the list and ranked second among the eight Texas public four-year schools to earn the “Best for Vets: Colleges” designation.
