Military Appreciation Day Stadium3

Saturday, November 2, 2019

Military and Veteran Student Visit day is designed to connect students with university representatives who work closely with our active duty military and veteran students, including the offices of Veterans Educational Benefits and Adult Learner and Veteran Services. The day also includes access to a Veterans’ tailgate and football tickets to Military Appreciation Day at Canvas Stadium, where the CSU Rams will take on UNLV.

Join the Office of Admissions, Adult Learner and Veteran Services, and our campus community to discover how CSU supports active duty and veteran students.

Why CSU?

Colorado State University is consistently named as one of the nation’s top public universities for military service members, veterans, and their families, according to Military Times.

CSU’s dedication to serving veterans and their families ranks No. 5 in the nation and No. 1 in the state of Colorado, and the university remains committed to providing financial, emotional, and educational support to the 1,500+ enrolled veterans.

In addition to becoming an academic destination for veterans and their families, CSU has also retained 86 percent of student veterans on campus while helping 66 percent of those enrolled to graduate.
