Hesston College

Hesston College

Hesston College is used to unique and not quite fitting into any of the pre-determined boxes. As a two-year, private, liberal arts college, Hesston is a Christ-centered community with a unique emphasis on relationships and how to genuinely do them well. Founded in 1909 in Hesston, Kansas, Hesston College is a part of Mennonite Church USA and is committed to serving people of all backgrounds and traditions.

Offering more than 50 programs of study for transfer, and three career programs, including a bachelor of science in nursing degree, Hesston promotes the importance of a well-rounded general education and the transformation that takes place in students in the first two years of the college experience as foundational for life, further study and a career. On average, 60 percent of Hesston graduates transfer after two years to continue working toward an undergraduate degree, and 40 percent complete career programs at Hesston.

Faculty and staff take seriously the job of walking with and mentoring students as they explore, grow and discover more about themselves, the world and those around them.
