I love the atmosphere here at Cottey. Everyone is very friendly and the teachers are understanding and willing to help you if you need it. The food is great and the traditions are unique and fun. It's a great school! The only thing I dislike somewhat is that it's a smaller school in a smaller town, but I knew that when I chose to come here. The good far outweighs the bad in my opinion!

Although Cottey does not carry my degree, I am still able to get experience by working in their Career Closet, doing costuming for the dance company, and networking with other women in my field of study. Every girl can benefit from an education here!
Cottey has an excellent academic program and caring faculty and staff. However, sometimes things can get catty amongst the students, which, given it's a close knit community, shouldn't be much of a surprise.
