Be Greater campaign: The numbers

Students walking on campus

The Be Greater Capital Campaign seeks to carry out Hesston College’s mission now and into the future by addressing core needs within our largest program areas. The campaign will enhance campus facilities for growing nursing and athletics programs where limited and outdated structures restrict some of our capabilities and inhibit the full student experience.
