Kirkland, Wash.: LWIT is one of Washington's community and technical colleges named as top military friendly schools in the nation according to G.I. Jobs magazine.
The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list released this week honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that do the most to ensure the success of military service members, veterans, and spouses.
G.I. Jobs magazine compiled the list through research and data-driven analysis of surveys from more than 12,000 schools nationwide, along with a survey of more than 3,000 student veterans. The results were independently audited by national accounting giant Ernst & Young. LWIT was among only 1,739 schools nationwide to make the list.
