Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

USF deemed even more veteran-friendly



usfvets.jpgWe were so caught up last week in the University of South Florida Polytechnic-potential-split drama that we almost missed this piece of good news about the school. USF was just ranked No. 5 among the country's most veteran-friendly schools by Military Times Edge magazine. That's up from No. 8 last year.

In the past few years, USF has made it a priority to reach out to its military students. We told you earlier this year about a unique class at USF that's designed just for them. And again last month when Pat Tillman's widow spoke to the veterans as part of a gathering for Tillman Foundation scholarship recipients. USF is one of 12 Tillman partner universities in the country.
