UNG named Military Spouse Friendly School

UNG was named one of 196 schools on the 2019-2020 Military Spouse Friendly Schools list. This marks the university’s first appearance on the list.

Senior Heather Callahan-Williams was not surprised that UNG received the recognition. She said the university has been helpful to military spouses such as herself, whose husband deployed with the U.S. Army Reserve while she was enrolled at UNG.

“I knew I could reach out to people if I needed to and they would accommodate me,” she said.

Since 2009, the Military Spouse Friendly Schools list has been used as a resource for military spouses and is based on a set of standards for higher education institutions.

Data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations are used to create a comprehensive guide for military spouses looking to further their education.
