Military Missions

Saint Leo is a military-supportive community, serving those who serve whenever and wherever it is best for them.


Earning Our Stripes

Saint Leo ranked eighth in the country in the Online & Nontraditional School category, which recognizes the university’s commitment to educating military personnel, veterans, and their families wherever they may be—even if they are deployed.

Military Makeover

In March, Saint Leo University partnered with the Military Makeover Team for an episode of Military Makeover airing on Lifetime Television®, featuring an interview with University President Bill Lennox.

Well-Deserved R & R

In July, University Campus hosted the Steel Mags Summer Summit, a retreat for members of the Steel Mags Sorority (wives, sisters, and daughters of those in the U.S. Army Special Forces). Saint Leo partnered with the Steel Mags, the Green Beret Foundation, and Veterans Alternative, a nonprofit founded by Saint Leo alumnus and U.S. Army veteran Brian Anderson ’14.

Serving Those Who Serve

From September 28 to 30, Saint Leo faculty, staff, students, and alumni took part in the One Community Now Stand Down, assisting veterans in need and veterans in transition. The event, held at the Concourse Rotary Pavilion in Shady Hills, FL, helps put those who served in the U.S. military in touch with needed services, including medical care.
