I love, love, love Cottey College. The small class sizes are amazing because my professors know exactly who I am. I don't just exist as a name to them. Also, the suite living is great too. I've met so many amazing people that I wouldn't have gotten to meet if I had gone to a big university. It's also nice to have a home away from home. Everyone here is extremely nice and helpful, so it isn't hard to find someone to assist you if you really need it.

it's a good school for getting a 2 yr degree/as a transfer school, but not for 4 years. there aren't many internships around because the school's in the middle of nowhere, but the curriculum is challenging and the teachers are sharp. limited resources makes things difficult however.

Cottey College is an incredible institution that opens doors for young women everywhere. Cottey has inspired me to become a strong, independent woman who encourages other young women instead of tearing them down. I feel incredibly cared about and looked after here at Cottey.
