If I were a Cottey student… I went to Cottey back in 2010 and had such an amazing experience!

If I were a Cottey student… I would be super excited about our travel opportunities! The chance to go overseas with the school is something that I did not get with my alma mater and I cannot stress enough how cool this opportunity is. Our students get to see some amazing places like Paris, London, Italy, and many more!

 Favorite spot on campus?  Vanek Family Softball Field. Without a doubt, I love being at the ballfield and getting to watch the Comets is a blast!

Hometown before Nevada, MO: St. Cloud, Minnesota

Rural Missouri, really? Really! I actually really love living in Nevada – the seasons are gorgeous and the small-town atmosphere is a nice relief from the chaos of the big city. The other good news? There are plenty of shopping malls within a few hours’ drive when Amazon just doesn’t cut it!

Women’s education: old-fashioned? No way! Cottey College may be a single-sex institution, but we are as modern as they come, and the fact that men aren’t taking classes doesn’t even register with many of our students after the first few days. In all honesty, the benefits of an all-female learning environment far outweigh any disadvantages. Don’t believe me? Then, please, visit our campus and ask the students themselves!
