Charles

Hesston College is a school I would recommend someone who likes small towns, and doesn't want to go to a big school. Hesston is a over priced school, with great teachers. However, the campus life can be better. There are ridiculous rules and fines, and this is to cover for the lack of students they can get to come there. They campus does get involved in sports, but the administration is too strict and doesn't allow really any rowdy cheering. Overall Hesston is not a bad place, but wouldn't be my choice if i could do it over again.

Amanda

Everyone has been extremely helpful and always available. It's a very personable environment and everyone is eager to learn.

I have dreamed of these moments for most of my life. It's official I have reached one of my greatest accomplishments so far in my life. Hesston College has made this all possible. There is so much I have learned both on and off the court and many of those things have to do with Hesston's core covenants: joy, engagement, accountability, and community. The two core covenants​ I think have made a big impact on my life in my first semester of college would be joy and engagement. Through joy, I have learned to love the sport of volleyball, God, and my family and friends ten times more than the amount I did before this season. I have fallen in love with a game I thought I had already loved with most of my heart in whole new ways. I have been pushed my teammates, coaching staff, and myself this season to be a better athlete, student, and person in general. They pushed me whether we were at the beginning of the season three-a-days, trying new churches, midseason games against some of the biggest competitors we will ever face, and finally being away from home for the first time ever. I have been able to find joy in all of these things. Engagement has played a huge role in my life this year being on Heston's campus. I believe that Hesston is a great place to get engaged in a place on campus whether you are getting engaged in volleyball, in the classroom and also in our community. Volleyball is something I have always strived to be engaged with but this year I have pushed myself to be more involved in the classroom as well as been engaged with activities in my community. I think being engaged in multiple aspects has made my first semester more enjoyable as well as interesting. I have had an amazing first semester on Hesston's campus while growing as a person to be more well rounded while making many great memories along the way. This year I have also learned a lot about myself, volleyball, my faith, and psychology. I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities I have received here at Hesston College.

In my opinion, Hesston is a great place to make new relationships and continue your education, while having a good college experience. The education is good and the teachers and professors take their time to help you understand what you are learning and studying.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    What you learn in life not only enhances your vocabulary and social skills, but it stimulates your mind to make good decisions. It's the difference between a 5-figured, or a 6-figured guaranteed sum when darkness comes into our lives. Some would say it comes from friends, family, school, teachers, professors, and life in general. The answer is our choices and decisions. Society says that graduation is an achievement of a milestone in our life, but what we don?t realize is that our life is just beginning, it embarks on a new life journey, in which some are scared to face. We can get a well-paid job with a nice pay cut, but the bottled emotions one may have come from the support that our families, teachers, pastors, and leaders have given us. At twenty-two years old, I am able to give back to my family and community. I?ve learned that a accomplishment is only as big as you make it to be, a dream starts off as an unpainted picture, but in learning, crying, failing, succeeding, teamwork, hard-work, effort, comfort, and support, you can paint a ?masterpiece.?

  4. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    Hesston College is a very warm and welcoming college. The first time I visited the campus, students would smile and say hello in passing. There is a very refreshing and optimistic view of life and education here. I would say it is unique because the students call the professors by their first names. Not only is it normal, but it is encouraged. The goal is to create an atmosphere of family, a feeling that you are close to your professors even outside the classroom, where they become your mentors and friends. It is a very enjoyable and warming experience.
