Three Rivers Community College Named 2017 Military Friendly School
Three Rivers Community College is pleased to announce that it has earned the 2017 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media. Each year, the list of Military Friendly® Schools is provided to service members, veterans and their families, helping them select the best college to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
To earn the Military Friendly® School designation, Three Rivers met thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
“As a veteran myself, I am proud of the military community that we serve, and pleased that Three Rivers’ commitment to this population in making the campus a welcoming and necessary resource has resulted in our being recognized as a Military Friendly School,” said Steve Finton, the Acting Dean of Student Services.
The College has a Veteran’s Organization Student Group and an OASIS Center, which serves as the focal point for veterans’ activities where student veterans can access services such as academic advising, Veterans Administration educational benefits and counseling. It provides a place to take a break during the school day, study, and socialize with fellow veterans.

Three Rivers will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly® Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine, and on militaryfriendly.com.
