“When I asked what the best donations would be, they quickly responded, ‘coffee.’ Our reason for this outreach is simply to give back to our Connecticut Veterans as it reflects the College’s Four Dominican Pillars of Study, Prayer, Community, and Service,” Noonan said.

Recently, it was announced that Albertus has been named a Top 10 Military Friendly School for 2021-2022 by the Military Friendly Schools Survey, a testament to the programs the College has created for the military community. The survey is the longest-running and most comprehensive review of college and university investments in serving military and veteran students. The designation is a result of extensive research in which the College met or exceeded benchmarks and access to federal programs for veterans. This is the third time Albertus has achieved Top 10 status and sixth time to make the overall list.
