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
