Following the tour of campus they were provided lunch in the McAtee Dining Center where a few current Cowley students who were homeschooled joined the group for lunch to discuss their experience. 

After lunch a few of the students took the opportunity to visit with instructors from various departments on campus. 

“It was an awesome day and students left with a smile saying how comfortable they felt,” Cowley College director of admissions Marcus Hicks said.

Cowley was the first community college in Kansas to receive a Tier I rating for homeschool friendly admissions practices by the Home School Legal Defense Association.
