What's unique about your campus?

I would guess that most people who love this school love the fact that they are not just teaching us how to make a living, but are teaching us how to live.

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

College is said to be "the times of your life" ; however, in reality, college is what YOU make it! College can be the greatest experiences you will ever encounter! It brings about new opportunities and freedoms you have never experienced before! My advice would be to truly cease each and every opportunity you are handed! Most of these opportunities will never come but once in your life, and there's no better time to open them welcomingly than these young years! I think when looking at colleges you need to consider where the student would feel most comfortable and happy! Being away from home may be tougher than you think and it is key to find people who can become your second family! Also, find schools that challenge you academically, because afterall, our education is the main reason we are attending school! When you pick your college make sure you branch out of your normal comfort zones, make new friends with people you normally wouldnt have thought about. These friendships can be forever lasting! Also, don't abandon your studies! Make memories! Make the old addage true, make it "the time of your life!"

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The small campus can be boring, and leaves me lonely and bored at night.

Let the kids choose where they want to go. Don't limit their options.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who has even a slightly liberal view of Christianity. You will be very disappointed with the Bible teachers and their lack of love for the Bible.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell them about the good Bible teachers, not the ones who tell you nothing that you don't already know. They actually show the Bible as it is meant to read and bring new life to the scripture.

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

Visit the school without a special event going on. Ask yourself how much will it cost for four-years. (The amount not covered in scholarship and figure up the payments for when you graduate) As yourself if you're willing to pay this much to attend there.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

It's really expensive. People are fake. That I would find my best friends here. I also wish I would have known how little there is to do in Henderson.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A conservative, church of Christ member. A student here is able to make face with administrators who going to church there as well as be able to have their life in a fish bowl. Everyone knows everyone and more importantly, everyone's business.

Decide if you are comfortable at the college you choose! If you feel comfortable beforehand, it will make meeting people and living with strangers a lot easier. You only have one freshman year of college, and you should make the most of it! Don't get caught up in the party scene, you want to remember your experience! College is a time of growing up and learning about yourself! Remember who you are, where you've come from, and make those people proud at home! There is more to learn in college than ever! The world is at your fingertips! Go to a college with a study abroad program. It will change your life! Open your eyes to the world around you and see as much of it as you can! Communicate with your parents often, they have made a lot of sacrifices throughout your life to get you to where you are. Love college!

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you really like small towns and want to form life long relationships with people, this would be a great school to attend! There are lots of opportunities and the classes are so small that you can have an intimate relationship with your classmates as well as your teacher.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Freed-Hardeman is a very positive friendly environment filled with great people, but can prove to be narrow-minded if you do not agree with the conservative Church of Christ theology.

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

To make the best of one's college experience, one must be able to get along with the people. After all, the college is only made up of the students and faculty associated with it. The campus, the town, how good the food is, how good the dorms are, etc., are all extra perks, but one can have the best college facilities in the world and still be miserable, if they don't enjoy being around the people. One must choose a school for what he or she wants to get out of it, be it academics, or culture, a good party scene, or to just get away from mom and dad. My advice is to visit campuses, talk to people, see what the people you meet think about the school, see if you would like the people that you meet, and then make a decision and stick to it. No matter where you choose, the college years will be some of the most exciting years of life.

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

Freed-Hardeman has the reputation of being a "bubble"; many of the rules set in place seem like they are trying to isolate students from the world, instead of exposing them to a broader world view.

Just come here ready to have fun and learn. Its a very nice college and you WILL have a good time and make tons of friends. You do have to try though lol but there are plenty of ways to have fun too.

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

If you want to go to a private university go to a community college and do the basics first. It will save money and be much easier.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for having such a great Christian environment. Academics are definitely a high priority, but not without the morals and patterns encouraged all the time. The motto of FHU is, "Learning to live and to make a living".

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

I would tell anyone that there is no way to choose a college properly, even if you know its reputation is good, except by visiting the campus. That is so vital. It is not super difficult to put up a good website and take pictures of the best places of the campus and make it appear as if it is awesome. The main way to know what is best for your child (and the money you're spending) is to visit the campus and meet the president and the teachers and get to know the people. One thing awesome about FHU is that it is definitely trying to improve its campus, but it is far above other colleges because of the people. It is the people that make up the school and that make up the staff that make it so unique. You can not go many places where you see your teacher lecture in a class and then see them on Sunday morning worshipping right down the aisle just as much as you. FHU is a very unique place and you can not figure that out until you come. So come on.

First, decide how far you are willing to go for the eduction you want. Geographic proximity to home will greatly impact your post-secondary eduction. Next, find a school that has at least one major course of study that you feel passionate about pursuing. Remember that a majority of students change majors during their college years. Following that, find and talk to alumni and current students about the atmosphere of the school. Ask honest questions, and expect honest answers. Don't only believe paid representatives of the university. They are paid because they have a definite positive opinion of the school. Ask sources that are less biased. Tour the campus of as many schools as you can, and talk to students that you see. You will be able to better gauge the school's atmosphere and priorities that way. After that, find out what kind of financial aid the school realistically offers you, and read carefully. These are all important considerations to undertake when choosing the university that is right for you.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There is a prevalent feeling of entitlement by the student body. Many of the students have a very limited worldview, but there are those who have moved beyond this. The rules here happen to be fairly strict and out-of-date. There is a curfew, students are required to live on campus until they are 23 years old, married, or have 126 hours of class completed. Smoking and drinking are not permitted on campus, and are discouraged off-campus.

When choosing a college, always interview current students and past students. They will be the ones that will tell you the truth on how the school really is.

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

The worst thing about Freed is seeing the same people everyday and a few drama problems.
