Given Emporia's veteran-friendly history, it should be no surprise Emporia State has been honored for its work with veterans for the second straight year.
Last year, Victory Media called ESU a military-friendly school. This week, U.S. News and World Report named Emporia State to its Best Colleges for Veterans list.
Emporia State is 27th on the Midwest Region list. Colleges and universities qualify by participating in federal initiatives that help both veterans and active service members get their degrees.
The announcement comes shortly after Emporia celebrated the 60th anniversary of Veterans Day earlier this month.
