My experience at FHSU had been amazing . I am an out of state student from Colorado and I just so happen to hear about FHSU from my counselor. I took a trip to visit the campus and I feel in love the campus is so beautiful the people are so kind! Professors are very dedicated and always willing to help students out! I received my undergrad from FHSU and I am planning on receiving my MBA from there to! I feel like I chose an amazing school and got really lucky to receive such an amazing education from them!

Fort Hays has some of the top programs all across the us! They have professors who are knowledgeable about the profession they are teaching! They have new state of the arts technology and buildings that help students use hands on. This allows students to get first hand experience and play real life scenarios. Best decision I ever made!
I have not yet begun studying there but will begin this August. The tour I had of the facilities was very encouraging. The sculpture department works closely with the applied technology school, so I'll be working with traditional and new cutting edge processes. I'm also stoked that I will be able to use the gym.
