About the Campaign

About the campaign

When Virginia Alice Cottey established a school for women
When the P.E.O. Sisterhood said “yes”
When a professor believed in you
When you realized your passion
When you had the confidence to succeed

These, and so many other moments, have defined Cottey College and Cottey students since 1884.

For 125 years, Cottey has offered an experience For Women, By Women, About Women—one that transforms lives. Here, women find their voices, their passions, their callings. Here, young women are the leaders, the scholars, and the stars. With the help of A Defining Moment: The Campaign for Cottey College, we will educate and inspire even more women while Cottey becomes a national model for women’s higher education.

We are poised for another defining moment in our beloved College’s history, and you can play an important role.
