Why Hastings?

You’ll Get a Degree, Plus

At Hastings College you’ll become an expert in your field. Yet the value of a Hastings education goes well beyond that. By building your own personal plan through one-on-one mentoring, Hastings helps you graduate with a broad academic background and be mentally flexible, an excellent communicator, a creative thinker, able to manage and solve problems and answer the kinds of questions you can’t Google. These are exactly the skills employers and graduate schools want. Our success: 97% of recent grads are employed or continuing their education.

We’re a Known Best Buy

We recognize college is an investment. It’s why we work to make Hastings affordable, something that’s been recognized over the years by Barron’s, which named Hastings a “Best Buy in College Education”, Washington Monthly, which named us a "Bang for the Buck” school and MONEY, which said we're one of the 50 most affordable private colleges in the country. Last year our students received more than $18 million in scholarships and grants and every student received financial aid. So can you.

They’re volunteers in schools and churches, they deliver food to those in need, clean parks, coach youth teams and serve as mentors. With dozens of student organizations, sports teams, Greeks and academic societies, you’ll make new friends, discover new talents and own your future. Choose where you want to be involved and have fun!
