Sept. 21 — ENMU briefs

ENMU designated military friendly

Eastern New Mexico University in Portales has been named a Military Friendly School by G.I Jobs, a magazine devoted to helping military members make the transition to civilian life.

This makes ENMU among the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide in assisting current military members and veterans.

The list was determined through research into approximately 8,000 institutions of higher education on the services, benefits and special attention offered to veterans.

A few of the services that ENMU provides to military members include providing a VA counselor, helping them get waivers to pay in-state tuition, giving them academic credit for elective courses based on their military experience and waiving physical activity course requirements.

United Way campaign ongoing

Eastern New Mexico University’s United Way campaign is under way. ENMU’s goal this year is $20,000.

United Way donations may be earmarked for any non-profit charity or for the general United Way fund. The campus will receive regular updates on progress toward the goal.
