Wright State was the only Dayton-area university that made the list. Of the seven Ohio colleges on the list, Wright State was rated the lowest while Bowling Green State University ranked the highest at 46th. Ohio State ranked 104th.
In March, Wright State earned the No. 1 ranking in 2016 by Military.com and CollegeRecon for “Best Veteran Programs.” For several years running, G.I. Jobs and Military Advanced Education have honored the university by designating it as military friendly, according to the university.
Last week Wright State announced it is starting a $100,000 graduate school scholarship fund for members of the Ohio National Guard. The scholarship fund was modeled after one the university has had in place with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base since 2014.
