QCC Deemed Military Friendly School 

Quinsigamond Community College has received designation as a 2019-2020 Military Friendly ® School. The college has received this designation since 2014-2015.

Now in its 10th year, the Military Friendly® Schools list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly ® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. This year 766 schools earned this prestigious designation.

RED Shirt Fridays 

The Veterans Club is  currently “sponsoring” RED Friday Days.(remember everyone deployed). Club president, Manny Antwi, made the red shirts in QCC's Fab Lab and they have been given out on a “first-come, first-serve” basis to anyone who supports the initiative (supplies are limited).  RED Fridays are not intended as a political statement, just a way to show  support for the men and women who serve our country in the military. 

 In other news: there will be a Veterans Club Night at the Worcester Railers on March 31 at 3:05 p.m. OCC's Veterans will present the colors during the National Anthem. For more information, contact Veteran Affairs at 508.854.2721 or email veteranaffairs [at] qcc.mass.edu
