KEYSVILLE — Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds, and publisher of “G.I. Jobs,” “STEM JobsSM” and “Military Spouse.”

Now in its seventh year, the original premier Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities, according to an SVCC news release.

Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly School title by completing a survey of over 100 questions covering ten categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes and military spouse policies.
