Overall Rating

Overall my first year experience at Fort Hays was great. I really loved how most of the teachers were open and friendly, and so easy to talk to. I was very skeptical when I first came here, it being my first year away from home. They had lots of activities to do to keep your mind wandering, and helping you to meet new people. Living in the dorms was a great help, since I am not very outgoing as it is. I met so many wonderful people and would recommend even the shyest person to come to FHSU!
