Military education has been part of Colorado State University’s land-grant mission since its founding in 1870, and CSU was one of the first in the state to begin commissioning Air Force officers after World War II. CSU is also one of the best universities in the nation for veterans who want to continue their education after separation from service, according to Military Times. Both ROTC cadets and student veterans bring unique perspectives to their campus experience.
