3 Reasons You Should Consider Cottey

1. International Travel Included – At Cottey, all students have the opportunity to travel abroad on a one-week international experience. Cottey covers the airfare, lodging, and group excursions, making this a truly distinct program! Below is a recap of our 2024 visit to Dublin, Ireland.

2. Uniquely Tight Community – We provide a campus community unlike others. Our residential capacity of 350 students means you will quickly develop meaningful connections across campus and make life-long friendships.

3. Women’s College – Come to a place where your voice will be heard! As an all-women’s college we empower women to be future leaders and contributors in whatever field they want to enter.



The women who come to Cottey aren’t looking for an easy path for a degree. They are looking for an experience that enables them to discover their passions, find their voices and achieve their goals—both academically and socially.

Cottey allowed me to double-major in Theatre and Biology. Singing and acting is my dream, but you can have multiple plans at Cottey.

Chloe Bollin Class of ‘24

Cottey is a really great place to be heard. You don’t realize how little space you have as a woman until you don’t have to fight for space anymore. Cottey is a safe space for people to explore personal interests, academic interests, and be themselves.
