Colleges with a large veteran population are better equipped to support and accommodate those who have had military experience.

The VA reports that there are 8 G.I. Bill® students at Blackburn. The school has a total enrollment of 516 students. This means that around 1.55% of students are using the GI Bill® to help them afford their education. Putting that into perspective, the Student Veterans of America estimates that about three-four percent of all college students in America are veterans.

This number includes all chapters of the GI Bill®, e.g. Post-9/11, Montgomery GI Bill and Reserve Education Assistance Program. It also includes Veteran Readiness and Employment.
