SSU is a Military Friendly School

SSU is an excellent choice for military veterans due to its small class sizes which allow faculty to better understand the needs of veteran students.

The university also has an active student veteran club, counseling tailored to the needs of military veterans, and a dynamic Office of Military and Veteran Services office that supports students as they adjust to college-level academic work.
