Freed Hardeman university is an amazing place to go. The teachers really care about you, and you can go to them about anything. Their academics are really next level too. The campus is beautiful with the bell tower in the middle of campus. I love it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited when trying to make my decision on where to further my education and although I decided to attend elsewhere, I did enjoy some aspects of Freed. Such as the small town feel and the instant connections you can make with people there. I enjoyed my visit, but just couldn't see myself being there for the next 4 years.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself just to enjoy growing up more. I was so ready to begin the next step in my life that I think I may have missed some of the "high school experience". College is great, but it goes by way to fast. I would tell myself to just stop and smell the roses every once in a while.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Freed Hardeman is the Christian environment in which I can freely express my beliefs without being judged by others.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would stress the importance of organization. I have learned a lot about staying on task and being organized. I would also tell myself that my grades matter. If I had it to do over again, I'd skip the three hour phone calls and crack the books a little harder. All in all, high school went pretty well be there is always room for improvement.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself when I was a high school senior, I would tell myself not to worry so much about leaving home and leaving my home congregation, but instead, focus on the good things that will come with college life. Leaving home is sad, but you are starting a new chapter in your life, and exciting introduction to independence. Take the ACT and SAT as many times as possible, and study for them to try and get your score as high as possible. Enjoy senior year, and get excited for college!

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is looking for a good Christian environment, with many opprotunities for spiritual enrichment, will be very happy at Freed Hardeman University. The school is very small, and so the students know eachother and the professors actually know the names of their students, you are not just a number at this school. It is set in beautiful Tennessee, with tons of activities on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell my hign school self so many things about college life. First, I would say "don't sweat the small stuff". Nothing is worse than overreacting when things don't go as you plan. Most of what happens to you in life will be different from what you expected. Second, I would tell myself "be yourself". I would make sure I knew that I had so many things to offer others by being nothing more or less than what I am. Thirdly, people disappoint you and you disappoint others. Sometimes this can't even be helped, but as long as you know this ahead of time, you will save yourself a lot of long nights worrying. Lastly, I would tell myself that college is a place where you meet some of the best people you'll ever know and they will become your lifelong friends.

What's unique about your campus?

Freed Hardeman is very spiritual minded. Everyone here is very supportive of your abilities to exceed in every area of your life.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It's small, so you always feel like your actions make a difference. It also has a religios affiliation so there is an underlying spiritual atmosphere.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My social skills have greatly improved. In college, everyone is an adult so you are forced to grow up quickly. I've also learned valuable study skills that I'll be able to use throughout my college experience. I've learned that procrastination is NEVER the answer and that Taco Bell's fourth-meal isn't a joke, it actually exists and it's miraculous. College has made me a better person. I'm more patient, more understanding, and more accomidating to others. It's changed me from a rebellious teenager to a well-rounded and responsible adult. I've also grown more spiritually. I finally know the genuine definition of unconditional love, and that, is worth all of the time and effort I've put into my education.

What kind of person should attend this school?

You have to be serious about college to be able to afford it. Study, study, study!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I began my college experience at Freed Hardeman University as a collegiate basketball player. That was a life long dream. I chose communications as my career as I was considering law and felt communication was essential part of being an effective lawyer. I didn't have good sports experience as I had numerous surgeries on the same knee and eventually was told - it would be too much for my knee to continue. Basketball is a true passion of mine so I struggled with this news ; I had always thought I would be playing for my entire college life. I made mistakes after this news but I know my experience there was invaluable as it taught me about true accountability and perserverence to get up and do what is needed despite a dream being destroyed. It also taught me to lean more on God to get me through and try to learn what I needed from this. I have since changed schools and majors. I have changed to Education / English and I am pursuing a teaching / coaching career. Looking back, this experience has allowed me to experience life on my own and make realize what my passions are.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Too Strict on dorm rules and must live on campus
