A large number of veterans attending a college means the college and faculty are more used to supporting and accommodating the needs of those with prior military experience.

The VA reports that there are 796 G.I. Bill® students at Columbus State. The school has a total enrollment of 27,621 students. This means that around 2.88% of students are using the GI Bill® to help them afford their education. For context, let's take this into consideration.

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.
