If I were a Cottey student today… again, I would want to experience all the new things that Cottey has to offer since my time here as a student!

Favorite spot on campus? My favorite spot on campus would have to be the courtyard next to the peace pole. It sits near the middle of the campus so you can relax, swing and just engulf yourself in the Cottey atmosphere.

What sets Cottey apart from other college and universities? I grew up in a large city and attended a co-ed college prior to attending Cottey– without a doubt I can say what makes Cottey different is how personal it is. You get the ability to know your professors and peers on a personal level and never feel like “just another student in the grade book”.

Favorite spot on campus? Anywhere outside when the weather is nice! Although, my absolute favorite place to study was the top floor of the library at a desk in front of the window facing Austin Blvd.
