SUNY Canton Selected as a Top School for Military and Veteran Students

Military Advanced EducationSUNY Canton has once again been awarded the designation of a top school in Military Advanced Education (MAE) magazine’s 2015 Guide to Colleges and Universities.

The annual publication enables prospective students to identify schools that follow best practices in military education. SUNY Canton was specifically chosen for its military-friendly culture, financial aid opportunities, flexibility, and on-campus and online support services. This is the third year SUNY Canton has been chosen as an MAE top school.

“We take great pride in our standing as a military-friendly school,” said SUNY Canton President Zvi Szafran. “We work diligently to create a supportive, welcoming environment for our nation’s service members, veterans and their families.”

This year more than 75 veterans, National Guard members, reservists and veteran dependents are enrolled at SUNY Canton. The college’s Military and Veteran Student Service Coordinator Patrick S. Massaro helps these students navigate the programs and services that can assist them in reaching their educational goals.


The MAE magazine designation is the second award the college has received this year for its military friendliness. G.I. Jobs magazine announced in September that SUNY Canton was chosen as one of the top schools in the nation that are doing the most to support service members.
