Central Lakes College has earned a spot as a "Top Military-Friendly" institution listed in Military Advance Education's 2012 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities. The listing displays the college logo, a 75-word description with enrollment numbers, average class size, degrees offered, and acknowledges credits for military training, transfer credits, staff trained in military needs, support services for veterans, and dedicated admissions officials responsive to the needs of veterans and families. To be listed in the fifth annual guide, CLC met rigorous criteria to demonstrate comprehensive focus respecting the value of citizen soldiers and their rights to succeed after service. "The men and women that serve our nation do so with true devotion and the same can be said of your faculty and staff," said Glenn R. Berlin, associate publisher. "I congratulate the entire staff at Central Lakes College for the inspired effort that you put into making it easier for our men and women in uniform to advance their careers by enhancing their educations."
