What Students Are Saying

4.39 Average Rating
Cottey College is a very small college (maximum 350 students) for women. The town it is located in, Nevada Missouri, is rather small, but there are things to do and we are within driving distance from other places. It is a great place to start your education as it is mostly a two year institution.

Cottey is a rare college that offers small classes and a lot of involvement. While there, I was able to find out about myself through the offered classes. They also have a great opportunity to develop your skills in a humble environment, allowing you to focus on the reason you are there.
