Miami University receives Collegiate Purple Star Award for supporting veterans and military-affiliated students

The Collegiate Purple Star Award is given to schools that are considered military-friendly and has many variations across the United States. However, this Ohio-specific designation is different from other programs because it is a free application process. One of the groups who initiated the program was the Ohio Veterans Educational Council, an organization of public and private institutions.
