Letter from the President

Hello and welcome to Conq Nation!

I would like to congratulate you on your decision to further your education, and for your decision to choose Dodge City Community College.

As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues, we here at DC3 are prepared to offer you an affordable, high-quality education—no matter what the circumstances are. Whether you are enrolling in face-to-face classes, online classes, or a combination of the two, we are here to help you succeed.

Back in 1935, when the first group of DC3 students set out to choose a mascot, they considered many different options. However, when the student body voted on the top six suggestions, the Conquistador was the clear winner. The students liked the name because of the area’s history—Spanish conquistador Francisco Vázquez de Coronado had explored the region in 1541—and because they knew the Spanish word ‘conquistador’ meant conqueror.

Dodge City Community College has an 85-year tradition of helping students conquer their career and educational goals by providing outstanding educational opportunities at an affordable price. Like thousands of DC3 students before you, I know that during your time here, you will build relationships and connections you will cherish for a lifetime.

Again, on behalf of the DC3 Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff, I welcome you to Conq Nation, and I urge you onward! Together we conquer!

— Dr. Harold Nolte, President
