What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
I feel like the academic rigor is very challenging, but success is achievable. Fort Hays challenges you to work hard to achieve your dreams. The classes they have you do are great for success in all of the areas of your life.

if you put effort into your classes you will learn a lot and feel good about your education. some of the classes truly are difficult!
KaiCee from Agar, SD
State school- but education is what you make of it. Throw yourself into it and it doesn't matter where you go.
Adia from San Diego, CA
The teaching is very professional, just as anyone would imagine an accredited four year institution.
Daniel from Alameda, CA
I find the classes challenging. To get an A you must work for it. Once you are in the upper level classes, the academic rigor obviously increases. If you want to learn, come to FHSU.
Cheryl from Hays, KS
Good. If you put forth all of your effort and go to the professors for support and show that you really want to achieve at the highest level, you can get there, and you will. If you don't give your all, don't expect the professors to hold your hand and spoon feed you. It is a big step from secondary academics and you will be expected to go out of your comfort zone at times, but it will all be for your good and to benefit you to the best ability. If you want it, you'll do all you can and need to and your professors will back you up!
