I'm lookin for a small town to move to, preferably with less than 1000 people, real friendly place. Hopefully a place with somewhere I can go to college for baking. Any help would be real appreciated!

I don't intend to offend, but I am thinking you have never spent time in Kansas. You listed a few contridictions in your post, and I wanted to list them out.
#1)Most KS towns are friendly on the outside, but the longer you live there, you get sucked into their drama and it quickly becomes "unfreindly", unless you toe the line of the prevailing social norms "i.e. go to the right church"- however, Bird-City-Kansas. still ranks high on my list. pop. 438 with the typical -9% Kansas town dying rate.
#2) I couldn't imagine a town with < 1K people that would have a public college....anywhere. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong, becuse it would be fascinating to know where there is such a college.
#3) Redneck Formula = anytown with less than 5K pop., that is 40min drive for the next nearest town. (most of Western KS)

North Central Kansas Technical College has a culinary school, but the city it is in, Hays, has about 19,000 more people living there than you specify as ideal.

Lennny has a good take, really, though I would pick St. Francis over Bird City. Both of which are within an easy 45 min. drive to Goodland's community college.

But a baking college? In Kansas?
In a small town, no less?



Are you joking?

Maybe the OP is looking for a college in a small town with a hot climate.

Manhattan Kansas has the American Institute of Baking. https://www.aibonline.org/ It's a city, but there are several small towns scattered around it. I can't vouch for how friendly they are but it seems like one of them might come close to what the OP is looking for.

I second this.

In order to be completely realistic concerning the OP's needs for a small town, the OP needs to change his/her major to agribusiness or diesel tech and there won't be difficulty.

I have nothing against baking, for you and your family or as a career but you have to be realistic about your attempt to fit a square peg into a round hole.

I was wondering if they meant to say banking ? But I see they posted the same question on the Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee forums, and spelled it baking there too.
