Did you know HCC has a 425 acre farm at its South Campus? The farm features 150 tillable acres and 250 acres of pasture and rangeland. Other ground holds a cattle working facility, ag-diesel mechanics facility and a commercial sized greenhouse. These facilities provide students with real-world experiences.
A group of students participate in a water aerobics course held at the Hutchinson YMCA pool. Whether you're a fitness buff or just need a break from your academic schedule, HCC offers a variety of PE classes for everyone and every fitness level. From yoga to football, from social dance to water fitness - we have a class for you.
In November the HCC Livestock judging team competed in the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) in Louisville, KY. HCC was the High team in Cattle, Swine, Reasons, and in Performance Cattle, earning 3rd place as high team overall. HCC was the only school to place two students in the top 5 individually overall. HCC student Coffman Liggett was named the Reserve Champion Individual and Riley Lafrentz was the 3rd high individual. Winning 3 of the 4 divisions at NAILE has never been done by HCC....until now :)
Our Agriculture Programs are being featured in the month of December. Many of these programs are located at the college’s South Campus, south of Yoder, Kansas. South Campus is a complete working farm, with a cattle herd, multiple grain and forage fields and a complete greenhouse and diesel ag shop. Did you know the south campus area was used as a Naval Air Base during World War II? It was located in the middle of the United States, rather than either coast, to be safe from bombing by the enemy.
