CSU named top military school

G.I. Jobs magazine recently named CSU as one of the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military as students.

The list was compiled through research of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.

“We are proud to once again be recognized as a university that is committed to our veteran students, helping them to achieve academic success as well as transition back into the community,”
said Jan Rastall, director of Colorado State’s Adult Learner and Veteran Services in a news release.

“The entire university community should be applauded for helping these students achieve their potential.”

In addition to services CSU has traditionally offered, the school is partnering with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program to offer full awards to U.S. military veterans and designated dependents.
