Conquistador Companion

The Conquistador Companion Program is designed to create a bond with Dodge City Community College students that are away from their own home and the Dodge City community. It gives the student a chance to have a familiar face to see or voice to hear in Dodge City and gives the people of Dodge City a chance to become more involved with students at DC3 that have a chance to become part of the community themselves.
