MILITARYFRIENDLY.COM | FEBRUARY 2017 | G.I. JOBS 17 IN THE HEART OF HARLEM and a stone's throw from the historic home of Alexander Hamilton stands one of those ornate gateways that signifies not merely a passage, but that something of great value lies within. Passing through this gateway one is immediately transported from the bustle of the "city that never sleeps" to one of America's great democratic achievements: the City College of New York (CCNY). If you haven't heard of it, then I am happy to introduce you, for the CCNY is precisely the type of institution that captures the intentionality and authenticity that is the hallmark of our growing ranks of Military Friendly ® Schools. As a means of defining what it means to be Military Friendly ® , I wanted to share my impressions and review of the institution that has risen to the top of our rankings for 2017. A STEP UP "The experiment is to be tried, whether the children of the people, the children of the whole people, can be educated; and whether an institution of the highest grade, can be successfully controlled by the popular will, not by the privileged few." Dr. Horace Webster, Academy J 21, 1849 The City College of New York defines what it means to be Military Friendly®. BY DANIEL NICHOLS PHOTO BY DANIEL NICHOLS
