WILMINGTON, NC — Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce that it has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School designation. Each year, VIQTORY, a service-disabled, veteran-owned business, recognizes higher education institutions that provide the best opportunities for veterans and their families with the Military Friendly® Schools list. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey.
“We are honored to achieve this designation and will continue to uphold the standard for our veterans and their families,” said Jason Bocchino, CFCC coordinator of veterans affairs. “We understand the transition into college can often be a challenge for service-members and their families, so it is our mission in Veterans Services to continue to deliver simple processes, quality resources, and support for this population.”
CFCC houses a Veterans Center at the Wilmington Campus, as well as two other veteran lounges at the North Campus in Castle Hayne, NC, and the Alston W. Burke Center at Surf City. These spaces provide veterans with numerous resources, as well as a place to decompress and build friendships with one another. In addition, CFCC offers priority registration to veteran benefit holders.
“CFCC is committed to bringing quality programs to active-duty military, veterans, and their families and to enhance their overall academic experience,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “We are proud to serve those who have done so much for our country.”
