Fall enrollment reflects strong national and international recruitment model

Hesston College reports official fall 2013 enrollment numbers of 449 students from 32 states and 17 countries. New students number 219.

A wide variety of cultures, countries, backgrounds and experiences are well represented at Hesston College with 64 new and returning international students, making up 14 percent of the total enrollment. The percentage of Kansas students and those from out of state are almost equal with 44 percent of the total student population from Kansas and 42 percent from other U.S. states.

“Hesston College has a long tradition of attracting students from across the country and around the world, which ultimately enriches the experience for each student,” said Rachel Swartzendruber Miller, vice president of Admissions.

There are 327 students living in the dorms, or about 73 percent of the total student population, a number that has held consistent for the last several years. Of on-campus students, 57 percent are from states outside of Kansas, 24 percent are from Kansas and 19 percent are international.
