The University of South Florida moved up a notch in the annual Military Times rating of veteran friendly schools.

Last year, USF came in at No. 5. This year, No. 4.

University of South Florida Director for Veterans Services Larry Braue said veterans also can contribute to learning and culture on campus by bringing years of wisdom and maturity that other students don’t have, as well as firsthand knowledge of issues around the world.

“They come with a maturity that I think a lot of our younger students, and even our faculty, value in the classroom,” Braue told Military Times. “They’re just more valuable to the discussions.”
