Hesston College International Program:
Hesston has a long history of supporting international students. We realize the unique needs of students from various backgrounds and believe that diversity makes our campus better! Each year, international students make up between 10 to 15 percent of our student body. After completion of the first two years of undergraduate study at Hesston, we assist students with the transfer process to many top four-year colleges and universities in the U.S.
Is cost of travel a concern?
Hesston College is willing to help! Allow us to reimburse half of your travel costs up to $200. Contact Mari Sailors for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to bring
- Weather-appropriate clothing. Kansas weather can be unpredictable.
- Pocket money. The event is free but having a few dollars available is always nice.
What to Expect
Ask any of our students what the deciding factor was for them to start at Hesston, and more often than not they’ll say it was the campus visit.
The first thing you’ll notice when you visit is the strong sense of community.
During your Hesston College visit you can do all the things you’d expect: tour the campus, sit in on a class, speak with professors, have lunch with students, enjoy a campus activity and more. You can explore the surroundings, check out what’s happening in Wichita (just 30 minutes away), and even spend the night with a student host in one of our mods -Hesston’s own, distinct approach to life in the dormitories. Take an online tour before you come to campus.
