Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

I loved and enjoyed some of the people I met along my journey there but I regret going to this school for its academics. It is the most liberal place I have been to that does not look at all angles of any view point that is made. IT SUCKED!

My two years at Hesston College has been life changing in many ways. Saying "See ya later" in May was very hard because of the love I found for the people I encountered at Hesston. Due to past experiences, I had a horrible view of those involved with higher level academia. Hesston gave me the ability to do a 180 on this view. I was in the nursing program. From the time I stepped foot on campus for my first visit to the day I received my nursing pin I felt welcome and loved. Everyone on this campus (students and faculty) loves and accepts everyone for who they are and what they bring to the campus. Diversity is accepted on this small campus! Being pinned by Hesston Nursing faculty will always be one of the most proud moment in my life. When people ask where I received my degree I am beyond proud to say Hesston College. This college has forever made a huge impact on my life. I recommend this amazing life changing institution to anyone!

Love Hesston and I miss it a lot. At first I didn't like the school with all the rules but I grew to love it and the people that I shared experiences with there. Everyone is so nice and understanding. The town just needs more restaurants and places to shop.
