On September 23, Hesston College will kick off this year’s Homecoming with a celebration of the history of and the path ahead for the School of Management and the School of Engineering.
For many decades, Hesston College has offered foundational business education and engineering courses. In 2021, the college, which has traditionally offered associate degrees, welcomed their first cohort of bachelor’s degree business management students. This fall the doors opened to the first cohort of bachelor’s degree engineering students. Hesston’s engineering program provides education in the field of mechatronics, an in-demand area combining computer science, electronics and mechanical engineering.
Homecoming weekend will offer activities, events and entertainment for alumni, supporters, students and the community at large. On Friday, attendees are invited to an international dinner and musical performance by vice president of academics Dr. Carren Moham. Moham has performed at The White House, the Munich Opera in Germany and Wrigley Field. Friday evening’s concert will also feature selections performed by the Bel Canto Singers.
On Saturday, September 24, activities on campus will include class and affinity group reunions to be held in various locations around campus. Sporting events will be part of the day as well. Participants are invited to join in the tradition of the Manickam Mosey walk and other alumni games.
