East Carolina University in Greenville has placed in the top 30% of U.S. schools for veterans in a new ranking by Military Times.

This year, ECU was 26th out of 62 schools in the southeast, and 93rd out of 311 schools across the nation.

To formulate the rankings, Military Times asked colleges and universities to answer more than 70 questions about services and programs tailored for military students — whether active-duty, veterans, families or dependents of service members.

ECU was one of 12 schools in North Carolina included in the annual Best for Vets guide.
