If you’ve ever wondered what employers think of ECPI University graduates, you need look no further than today’s job fair at the Virginia Beach campus. Fifty-three employers set up booths on three floors, all looking to meet ECPI graduates or those soon to be graduating. With more than 200 students/graduates in attendance, there was ample opportunity for everyone to get plenty of “face-time” with each employer. Congrats to Director of Career Services Gina Cassidy and her team for a job well done.

Victory Media, a publisher devoted to military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named ECPI University to its coveted Military Friendly Schools® list. The annual list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows ECPI University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran. “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”

Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media.
