“C” for Yourself

October 19-21, 2018
April 26-28, 2019


“C” For Yourself weekend is intended to be informative, casual, relaxed, and fun!

Current students, faculty, staff, and members of the P.E.O. Sisterhood will welcome you, answer your questions, and encourage you to join our college community. Take advantage of every opportunity to learn more about Cottey College, ask any questions you have, and explore our campus and facilities.

The center of a Cottey experience is classroom education, the mentoring relationships developed with professors, and the encouragement and support received in pursuit of academic excellence. Cottey College is the place to develop leadership skills and be inspired by traditions that are an important part of the College’s history.

We look forward to seeing you on campus! If there is anything that we can do to help you navigate the admission, financial aid and enrollment process, don’t hesitate to contact us at admit@cottey.edu or (417) 667-6010.
