Hesston College allowed me to gain a firm foundation for my general education requirements that I needed at the University of Oklahoma. The classes at the university, although still challenging, were better comprehended because of the emphasis on excelling in academics that the atmosphere of the campus and the faculty of Hesston College maintained. It was an assuring thought to go into the School of Engineering knowing that I had the groundwork needed to begin my course-specific work in the area of Mechanical Engineering.          -Ezra Zoschke '02
