Hometown: Mission, Kansas
Major: Political Science
I am attending FHSU for a couple reasons. First and foremost it was a school I could see myself
going to. Some schools that I visited were very nice but just didn't have the same feel. Second,
it was a place I felt where I could focus on my running and schoolwork. The fact that it is in Hays
allows me to get away from some of the distractions present in the larger metropolitan areas.
Third, the cross country/track teams are pretty similar to the one I've been on in high school.
The training philosophies and attitudes are basically the same. Finally, I thought that the people
I'd be interacting with most while I was on campus fit me better than at other schools. I could
see myself on the cross country team at FHSU but not at PIttsburg State or Wash U.
In my free time, I'm usually all about sports. I'm either playing them, watching them or
discussing them. Other than that I'm usually hanging out with my friends or reading about
current events and issues.

I am attending FHSU because of the small class sizes and personal feel I received while on
campus. And I loved the place.

reading, painting, or running/lifting

I am attending FHSU because I like the smaller campus size and my family lives close by in
Ellis and will be able to help me raise my daughter while I attend school.

watching crime shows.
Hometown: Alexander, Kansas
Major: Physics with a Minor in Spanish
The summer before I started 8th grade, I attended a camp on the FHSU campus. I basically
decided then and there I wanted to go to college at Hays someday. Of course I considered
other schools but ultimately chose FHSU because it is relatively inexpensive, offers many
scholarships, and is close to home.
I enjoyed playing sports and being actively involved in school events. I also enjoy playing the
piano and teaching it to my two youngest siblings.

Major: Medical Diagnostic Imaging
I’m attending Fort Hays because it has the program for my major that I liked the best, and when
I stepped on campus I immediately loved it. It’s gorgeous and I don’t think I’ll get lost.
I play a lot of tennis in my free time, I read (when I have time), and I spend a great amount of
time with my friends as well.
Hometown: Loveland, Colorado
Major: Social Work
I’m attending FHSU because it has the programs I want along with the people and overall feel.
When I visited campus I absolutely fell in love with it because it has such a cute charm in a non-overwhelming way.
I am a swimmer and enjoy playing other sports/working out and being active. I love hanging out
with my friends and watching movies or listening to music. I also like to read books, doing things
with my family, and just going with the flow and enjoying life.
