Visit Hesston College

Ask any of our students what the deciding factor was for them to start at Hesston, and more often than not they’ll say it was the campus visit.

The first thing you’ll notice when you visit is the strong sense of community.

During your Hesston College visit you can do all the things you’d expect: tour the campus, sit in on a class, speak with professors , have lunch with students, catch a Larks game and more. You can explore the surroundings, check out what’s happening in Wichita (just 30 minutes away), and even spend the night with a student host in one of our mods -Hesston’s own, distinct approach to residence halls.

When you visit, keep these tips in mind:

  • Bring a camera to capture things that stand out
  • Write down all of your questions ahead of time and bring them
  • Check out bulletin boards and event postings to get a feel for social life on campus
