Fayette, Iowa (January 8, 2010) –Upper Iowa University has again been recognized for its commitment to U.S. military service personnel and veterans by being named to Military Advanced Education (MAE) magazine’s “3rd Annual Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities” and the 2010 list for top-military friendly schools published by G.I.
