Columbus State Recognized as a 2017-2018 Military Friendly® School

Columbus State University was recently recognized as one of the top 2017-2018 Military Friendly® Schools in Georgia. CSU earned the Military Friendly® School designation for the sixth year in a row, while also gaining an additional bronze level recognition for the first year ever.

“We are honored to continue and build upon our strong reputation of being a Military Friendly® School,” said Susan Lovell, Director of Military Enrollment at Columbus State. “With more than 1,000 military affiliated students enrolled at CSU, we take pride in supporting these students and doing everything we can to help ease their transition toward earning a degree.”

Among the services and benefits available to CSU military students are a Military Service Center with a computer lab and lounge, a text book lending library, monthly Student Veterans Association meetings, partnerships with local veteran agencies and priority registration.

The Military Friendly® Schools list is created each year based on public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and responses to the Military Friendly® Schools survey from participating institutions. Final ratings were determined by assessing student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students, and specifically, for student veterans. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation.

As a Military Friendly® School, Columbus State will be showcased in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine, and on
