As part of ACE’s continuing research on veteran students in higher education, this report examines how student veterans/service members and their peers differ in their perception about and their engagement in academic activities and campus life.

The report finds that veterans/service members are more likely to be the first in their family to attend college, are older and are more selective about their campus life and academic activities. Despite efforts by colleges and universities, they report feeling slightly less supported on campus than nonveteran/civilian students.
