Personal Statement

"I see myself as a classroom facilitator, and I believe that my role is to engage students in activities that force them into action in order to make meaning of the material covered in class.

How will Hesston’s Business program challenge students academically?

Students will be challenged to move beyond simply learning the content
in the textbook. They will be asked to think critically and apply the
content learned to a variety of business situations to help them
understand how and why the material covered in class matters.

What are the advantages students in Business find coming to Hesston?

The Business Department has a dedicated faculty committed to helping
students succeed. Instructors serve as teachers, advisors and mentors
during the students’ two years on campus. We get to know our students
closely through the small class sizes, our role as advisors, and the
ability to work with students in multiple classes throughout their time
at Hesston College.
