    UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. -- Saginaw Valley State University has been named a Military-Friendly university for the 2019-20 school year for an eighth year in a row by VIQTORY.

    VIQTORY is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business founded in 2001.

    This designation is due in part to the dedicated staff in SVSU's Military Student Affairs Office.

    They assist military-affiliated students with everything from admissions counseling to a veteran peer support group.

    Bethany Alford, director of Military Student Affairs at SVSU, said that their staff works hard to be sure that military-connected students feel valued and receive exceptional service from SVSU.

    “We take much pride in serving those who have served for us,” she said. “This national designation demonstrates, once again, SVSU's commitment to serving student veterans and their families.”
