CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A National magazine, G.I. Jobs, lists Cincinnati State as one of the "Military Friendly Schools" for 2010.

The magazine says this listing means Cincinnati State Technical and Community College is among the top 15 percent of higher educational institutions that offer opportunities to America's veterans.  These schools make an effort to meet the needs of veterans and those who are still in service.

This is the first time Cincinnati State has been a part of the G.I. Jobs list of military friendly schools.  Members of the publication say they made their decisions by considering things like, the presence of full- time counselors for veterans, policies that protect the academic position of soldiers if they are called to active duty in the middle of a term, and the opportunities and other campus events specifically made for veterans.

"We have worked hard for years to make our campus and our programs accessible to the men and women who have worn our nation's uniform. We are proud to receive this recognition," says Cincinnati State President Dr. John Henderson.
