For the third time in four months, Winston-Salem State University received recognition for its support of military personnel when it was recognized in February. Victory Media designated WSSU a “2017 Military Spouse Friendly School,” ranking the university No. 7 in the country in the “public universities with more than 10,000 students” category. The award recognizes higher education institutions that actively recruit and support spouses of active duty service members.

“Military spouses are vital in their support of military personnel. The military life isn’t easy, and we want to ensure that the spouses receive the level of care that they deserve,” said Joel Lee, assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management at WSSU. “We’re proud to support all facets of military education, and this award is re-enforcement of our efforts.”

In December, WSSU was recognized by Victory Media with the “Top 10 Gold Military Friendly School Award,” ranking as the “best of the best” among small public colleges and universities. In November, WSSU was designated a Military Friendly School for the second consecutive year.
