Lewis University is Ranked Number One in Illinois by Military Times Best College 2019

Published: November 2, 2018.

Lewis University has been selected for Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2019, ranking number one among private schools in Illinois and 10th among private Colleges and Universities in the nation for 2019.

The rankings are based on the results of Military Times’ annual survey of veteran and military student services, the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement – as well as a detailed review of public data collected by federal agencies.

Lewis University was evaluated as a university that demonstrates the factors that help make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families. About 500 colleges took part in this year’s survey.

“Military Times' Best for Vets designation is trusted throughout the veteran community as the mark of excellence for schools and other organizations that work with veterans, service members and military families,” said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings.

Lewis University is a partner in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which allows qualified Post-9/11 veterans to enroll in more than 100 approved education programs at Lewis University, tuition-free. Incoming veteran students are encouraged to participate in several programs that can help with the adjustment to college life as a veteran. For example, the Veteran Introduction to College Experience course and Peer to Peer mentorship program are offered on campus to holistically support veteran students. An active chapter of the Student Veterans of America keeps Lewis University students engaged in the community and provides support in networking, academics and other professional opportunities.
