We take seriously the health and well-being of our students and community members. We also know that part of our responsibility is to act in the best interest of all. For us, that means considering the impact on the communities our students are from, the impact on our students and employees themselves and our own campus community.

2020-21 academic year
Hesston College’s top concern is for the health and well-being of all students, faculty, staff, family and others who will be on campus throughout the year.
To date, Hesston College’s rural location and small campus size has proved to be a benefit, and we are fortunate to be located in an area that has not been heavily impacted by coronavirus cases. As of June 29, according to the Harvey County Health Department, the county has had 40 cases of COVID-19 since March. Of the cases, 23 are active. Reporting on COVID-19 cases throughout the entire state of Kansas can be seen at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Even with a low number of cases locally, we take seriously and will comply with the guidelines put in place by federal, state and local governments and public health professionals.
