Cottey's academics are absolutely phenomenal. The class sizes are small, and you get to truly know your professors and your professors also want to learn about you. It is a small campus, so it's very quick and easy to get around; it's hard to get lost. The food is also incredible!
It is a great community and the students are amazing but administration needs work, there are been new hires for many positions and are often unhelpful or care more about the college than the student which was not what cottey has been know for. I am a legacy so I came in expecting the reputation of cottey to still be intact which it is not as much anymore. Professors are hit and miss, but there are some amazing ones, it is a really small community and new professors have a hard times acclimating to the intimate culture between professors and students. The college is still in growing pains, in their transition from a 2 year college to a 4 year university and that is felt and seen unfortunately. Last note amazing international student community which makes classes much more interesting, like when you're learning about issues in developing countries and you have classmates from Africa, Middle East, Asia, etc.
The environment is warm and inviting. The school focuses on women's' achievement. The teachers are always there to help with anything. Any question asked will be answered and any request will be filled to its best. Student are always friendly and staff knows exactly how to help. The food is amazing and dorm life works without any trouble.
Academic wise, it is a fantastic school. Your teachers are always available and willing to help. Making friends is very easy, and there are tons of things to do. The community is very involved in helping and being there for the students with job opportunities, homes to stay in during break, and just supporting the school in general.

I would tell myself that college is very important so do your best in high school because colleges look at the grades you have. Also to cherish every moment that you had in high school because you will not always have the same experiences ever again.
There are loving people that care soo much about me and my life.
Honestly, there really isn't anything bad about my school. The class rooms are small with few students, professors are willing to help each student individually and the school is located in a small town, so there aren't any temptations of a big city.
The kind of person that should attend this school is one that works hard and is dedicated to having a great education. Cottey College is a all womens private associate college that is all about giving women the opportunity to have a great job.
My school is best known for being a private, liberal-arts college for women and by women. This college is also known for its perks for students--each student with second-year standing is given the opportunity to travel abroad with their class over spring break.
cottey college is the perfect Environment for all GIRLS. its a small school that focuses on great education.
During the 2011/2012 school year I attended Cottey College on an Academic and Volleyball scholarships. I did know that Cottey was a private, all-girls school, and I think that Cottey's aim of women helping other women is great. However, I felt that Cottey was just like a giant sorority, and I was not comfortable with all the traditions, etc. The curriculum at Cottey is extremely tough; I didn't feel that my high school had prepared me enough for some of my classes. I would recommend Cottey to academic achievers.
The bottom line: women wanting to be only a number in college and who are uninterested to take an active role in life need not apply. Cottey challenges students, and women unwilling to open themselves up, explore their options and recognize their value in the world have no place at Cottey College. Students looking for the "typical college experience" may also be disappointed. Those wanting to change the world, however, find their home at Cottey College.
I think the most frustrating thing about Cottey is all of the false advertisment that you get as a perspective student. All I heard about before I came here was how incredible the education you recive is, and how great the staff are, and much more. Most true or at least mostly true, but I wish the school would just sell its as it is a unquie small school with tons of personality, rather than trying to make seem like something it isn't.
