Why ranking says UMN among most supportive of vets

As cited in The Washington Post, the University of Minnesota has been named among the 25 Colleges With Incredible Veteran Support.

It ranks 17th.

Here's what the list says about the U:

University of Minnesota’s One Stop program targeting veterans (as well as other demographics) involves all the expected services regarding scheduling, mentoring programs, mental health, finances, and the like. Veterans Connect, the school’s regular newsletter, makes all the latest news and events regarding military professionals on campus easily accessible — they even make stickers available designating especially veteran-friendly spaces. Every year, Golden Gophers celebrate Student Veterans Appreciation Day, with speakers honoring the contributions enrolled military personnel have made before, during, and after their stay at UM.
