Onondaga Community College was recognized for its outstanding service to Student Veterans when Military Times named it "Best For Vets." The prestigious honor is the result of the largest and most comprehensive ranking of schools for military service members and veterans.
"This is a team effort led by the vision of College President Casey Crabill. It's a reflection of every member of our campus community and their dedication and commitment to those who served. Their service to our country has earned them the services we provide. We are grateful to be able to provide a single point of contact for Student Veterans from the time they apply to college until graduation," said Steve White, OCC's Director of Veterans' Affairs. White spent four years in the United States Marine Corp. He oversees services provided to more than 200 GI Bill recipients who are Veterans dependents of Veterans. OCC has a dedicated space for Student Veterans. The Office of Veterans and Military Services is located on the second floor of Coulter Hall at the top of the main stairwell in room C217.
Earlier this year OCC was named a Military Friendly School by VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business.
