Welcome to Hesston College
We hope you take the opportunity to learn to know people here, enjoy the activities and help students make this important transition.
Parents, I hope you can take advantage of the special sessions we have planned for you. We pride ourselves on our hospitality, and will be disappointed if we fail to serve you in any way.
If you have any questions, ask any staff or faculty member nearby or stop by the Admissions Office on the second floor of the Alliman Administration Center. Thank you for being here. We hope this is an enjoyable Opening Weekend for you and your family.
– Dr. Joseph A. Manickam, president
