Best College Ever!

While it is in the small city of Nevada, it is the perfect college for women to pursue their degrees; It allows for a nice, quiet environment. I chose Cottey, because they have some very amazing professors, and AMAZING faculty. It feels like home, even when your'e not actually at home. Everyone is warm and welcoming, which is amazing. because it helps with homesickness. It's a good thing that the number of students is small, because class sizes are small, there is more one-on-one with professors, and making life-long friends is easier. I absolutely love the fact that there are traditions that many of the students follow, because it makes everyone feel like a big happy family; it also creates a positive atmosphere. Yes, the majority of the buildings are old, but that doesn't really matter, because if there is ever an issue, it is resolved quickly by physical plant. There are many traditions, activities, and events throughout the year that brings all of the students, professors, and faculty together to build stronger relationships, which makes Cottey a wonderful place to attend. I don't regret my decision in applying for Cottey, and i don't regret my decision of attending it either. This is the perfect College for a female to attend, because tuition and financial aid is really good, classes are fun, and the amount of students is perfect. I would really recommend this College to any female looking to get the degree they want. With the help of professors, faculty, and P.E.O's, Cottey has become my second home, and hopefully to future students as well.

Wondrous Cottey College

This school is perfect for a girl who wishes to become a leader but also be supported by women around her. The campus is very friendly with traditions and activities, while the living halls are homey. With it being a all girls school people typically get the wrong idea about it but forget your stereotypes this school is more than just female, its not all fine arts and pillow fights. The school offers many programs from biology to anthropology to writing. Cottey College is fairly affordable because of the help us students get from scholarships and the people who fund the school. The class sizes are small and the teachers teach personally instead of in a room with over 300 students in it. Overall I highly recommend Cottey College to any girl anywhere in the world.
