University description (as per official university website)
Fort Hays State University, also referred to as FHSU, is a public, coeducational university located in Hays, Kansas, United States. It was established in 1902 as the western branch of Kansas State Normal School, which at present is known as Emporia State University. The University was later renamed after Fort Hays because a large portion of its campus stands on land which was earlier occupied by Fort Hays. The University campus, along with its associated buildings, stretches over an area of more than 4100 acres of urban land.
The University is organized into the following colleges:
Arts and Sciences
Business and Leadership
Education and Technology
Health and Life Sciences
