Vacation College is a wonderful opportunity to combine a Cottey experience with personal enrichment, and have some fun along the way. Participants experience Cottey from the inside out as they stay in one of the residence halls, eat in Raney Dining Room and attend classes taught by Cottey College faculty and staff – all without the pressure of mid-term exams or finals! Nightly entertainment, recreational activities, and extraordinary chances for fellowship are all a part of this exciting week.
It is bound to be an experience you will never forget! P.E.O.s, BILs, alumnae, and friends of the College are invited to attend. Check back for class listings in January! Online registration will begin January 15, 2021. Vacation College dates for next year are August 8-13, 2021.

International COTTEY Day
Wednesday, March 27, 2020
In March 2005, Cottey College, P.E.O.s and alumnae everywhere celebrated the first ever International COTTEY Day, celebrating the life and memory of Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard, the founder of Cottey College. This year, plan to celebrate International COTTEY Day on March 27, Virginia Alice Cottey’s birthday. Imagine the recognition from not only wearing a Cottey promotional item, but explaining what Cottey College is. This is a fantastic way to help get the word out to prospective students that Cottey College is not only a great institution, but there is a legion of women who support the goals and ideals of women’s education.
