K-State College of Ag Visits Butler

Here at Butler the vast majority of our students transfer on to a 4-yr university after their two years here.  In this part of the country it amazes me how seamlessly students are able to make the transition from a Community College to the University level without losing credit hours. This is due to careful advising and the close ties our Ag department maintains with the College of Agriculture (in many institutions).  Butler CC is located in El Dorado, KS which is only about 2 hours from Kansas State University.  Many of our students do continue their education there.  Last night over 40 of our students met with representatives from Kansas State University here at our facility to learn about academic programs, activities, scholarships, and transfer student opportunities at the next level.

 We thank Dr. Don Boggs, College of Ag Assoc. Dean; Dr. Robert Bennett, Gran Science and Industry, and Dr. Scott Schaake, Animal Sciences and Industry professor and Livestock Judging Coach for taking time out of their busy schedules to help our Butler students learn about the possibilities available after graduation.
