Liberty University Ranked Among Best “Online and Non-Traditional Schools” for Veterans

A school with a healthy sense of respect for our veterans is a rarity among today’s college campuses.

We all know that veterans are some of the most important and least respected groups of people in this nation.

While civilians often bicker over who is more offended by what kind of cultural appropriation, millions of veterans are more concerned about the far more existential problems of life after combat and simply trying to make ends meet in the civilian world.

While our government’s provisions for those who have served are seriously lacking, we do still provide education for vets, and it’s nice to know that this prominent Christian school is proving to be an excellent choice for those funds to be used.

Faith-based Liberty University has been given a top rating by the Military Times for online and non-traditional schools for veterans on a recent round-up based on a survey of the school as well as student retention rates for military personnel and things like university culture, financial aid, academic quality, and school policies.

“Liberty University is the largest school in our online and nontraditional rankings list with nearly 103,000 students. And while Liberty has a physical campus in Lynchburg, Virginia, the overwhelming majority of its 30,000 veteran, service-member and military-dependent students have opted to attend online,” Military Times’ Rebootcamp reported.

“The university did a better job of retaining both its military and non-military students between 2016 and 2017 than most other online and nontraditional schools that participated in the survey.”

Liberty has a long history of providing quality education to veterans, they noted this week, as the Christian Post reports:

In a statement released Tuesday in response to the news, Liberty noted that they have been in the top ten best schools for veterans since 2011.

Emily Foutz, director of Liberty’s Office of Military Affairs, touted the private academic institution’s support for military personnel, stating “before military support was a best practice in higher education, Liberty has valued and supported our service members.”

“From assistance with setting up their military and veteran benefits to help before, during, and after a deployment, to participation in our military graduate recognition ceremonies, we have one goal — to do everything within our power to help our students achieve their goals,” said Foutz.

Next month, Liberty will hold a “Military Emphasis Week” from Nov. 7-14, which seeks to spread awareness and support for those who serve.

“Once a one-day event on campus, Military Emphasis Week has been expanded to a week-long celebration in order to give greater visibility, support and recognition to our military and veterans,” explained Liberty on its website.

“Events are planned throughout campus during this week to show appreciation for the men and women who have served and are serving this great nation.”

It’s hard not to imagine that a school with a healthy sense of respect for our veterans, a rarity on today’s college campuses, would commit itself to an academic program that allows them to flourish in their post-service education.

While most college campuses are hotbeds of anti-American resentment, Liberty, which bases its school philosophy on Christian values, understands the weight of what it means to serve your country.

Well done, Liberty University, and thank you for taking such good care of our veterans!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
