Cottey College Reviews
Cottey is such an AMAZING school with such a fantastic faculty and a well-educated student body. I have been attending for a semester and a half and the welcoming and nurturing atmosphere has completely reinvigorated my love for my newly intended major, English. The connection the staff has to the students is unlike anything I have ever seen before and I find it to be extremely positive that the connections these students make here turn into lifelong friendships and a lifetime connection to the place where it all began, Cottey College. I couldn't imagine my life anywhere else.
I have only been there once for a summer program, but I have already fallen in love. It feels like a safe campus and like everyone is there for you. Can't wait to start there in the fall of 2019!
Cottey is a great school and it's very unique, but sometimes they really mess up important things. They have a bunch of really weird, odd requirements for their bachelor majors. It's great to be special and all, but Chaucer and Whitman are still authors a graduating Literature major should know. Their associates degrees are great and the community in general is very fun to be in. However, I would not recommend staying for a Bachelor degree until they have time to figure some stuff out.
