If I were a Cottey student… I went to Cottey back in 2010 and had such an amazing experience! However if I were a Cottey student today I would take advantage of ALL the amazing opportunities it has to offer.  Cottey provides so many leadership experiences that help students grow and build an awesome resume!

Favorite spot on campus? Raney Dining Room!  The food at Cottey is amazing! The Raney dining room feels like home, not a cafeteria.

What sets Cottey apart from other college and universities? When I went to Cottey it was the first time in my life I did not feel like I was competing with other women.  I always felt like we were all building each other up to be the best person we could be.  Cottey College is an environment where you can thrive!

Meghan_VincentIf I were a Cottey student… I actually was a Cottey student in 2014, but if I were to get to come back as a student today, I would definitely get more involved in the opportunities offered by Campus Activities. In my time at Cottey I frequently attended the shows they brought to campus like magicians, comedians, and musicians – but that’s only the tip of the iceberg! Knowing what I know now, I’d go on tons of road trips to all of the cool surrounding areas, join in on intramural games, and attend more programs hosted by Cottey community members like paint night with an art student. They do so many things to make campus fun and exciting!

Favorite spot on campus?  That’s a tough one! For me, it would be a toss-up between the window seats in the P.E.O. parlor during a big storm or the swings between Reeves and Hinkhouse soaking in the sun.

What sets Cottey apart from other college and universities? Community! It’s hard to feel anything but accepted at Cottey. Between suite life, Traditions, and our environment of empowerment and growth, it seems like everyone is really able to find their people and make great connections with, both, their fellow students, and our faculty and staff.

Hometown? Warren, IL

Degree? B.S. in Corporate and Organizational Communication

Best place to visit around Nevada? In town, I’m a sucker for a walk around the lake at Radio Springs. When I have time for a day trip, Joplin is an awesome place to visit whether I’m looking for shopping or nature – they’ve got a little bit of everything only about an hour away!

Bucket list item? My biggest bucket list item was to go to London, and thanks to Cottey – I’ve checked it off!

Territories? Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, International
