3. Pennsylvania


Pennsylvania has both rural character and big cities, and it has a top university for veterans in both areas.

You can choose the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) out in the country,  the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) and Duquesne University in the city of Pittsburgh, Drexel University and Temple University in Philadelphia, or the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania (also in Philadelphia).

All schools are highly regarded for their academic education and student life, and graduates from Pennsylvania’s universities feed easily into the high-powered economies of Pittsburgh, one of the top 10 places for veterans to find jobs, and Philadelphia.
