Fort Hays State University was emphasized as the featured institution in the U.S. Navy's Flagship newspaper, which is delivered to all military bases in the Hampton Roads, VA, area.
"Fort Hays State University offers Navy service members accredited, traditional education, worldwide through a variety of distant learning delivery methods," said the article, which went on to describe FHSU as a "public-supported, four-year liberal and applied arts institution, located in Hays, Kansas, and accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), a nationally recognized regional accrediting agency."
The article also highlighted the 4,160-acre campus, which includes the 200 acres containing the main campus, and took note of the Sternberg Museum of Natural History and the university's 17-1 student-faculty ratio.
The newsletter cited FHSU as "a recognized leader in the use of instructional technology to produce effective course and program offerings. The university has built an outstanding reputation of serving students at times and in locations that are convenient for them. FHSU's goal is to serve an equal number of students in its Virtual College (http://www.fhsu.edu/virtualcollege/) through distance education as it does in its on-campus, traditional classrooms with its highly qualified faculty."
FHSU is a member of the Navy Rating Partner program offering a bachelor of general studies degree and allowing Navy training in more than 40 occupational specialties to count for college credit.
