BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- Bergen Community College was named a "military friendly school" by Victory Media.

“Beginning with the original GI Bill in 1944, institutions of higher education have embraced the opportunity to serve military veterans as they transition to civilian life, continue their education and seek employment,” Bergen President B. Kaye Walter, Ph.D., said in a statement. “At Bergen, we take great pride in this responsibility and remain committed to developing new strategies for serving the unique needs of student veterans.”

Bergen enrolls approximately 300 students under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. In 2013, the College opened its Veterans and Military Affairs Center at the main campus. The center offers veteran-specific counselors, advisers and information on benefits, events and resources.

Bergen is one of nine community colleges in the state to receive the designation.
