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

Parents do not need to push a decision on a child, but they do need to give advice and input. Let the child make the decision based on what the/she has learned and what parents say. Students and parents need to set up college days to go and view in person the colleges they are interested in. Students need to keep in mind that they are not going to school to just party but to get a good education. So the parent and the student needs to look at the academic area of the school and possibly let that be a major deciding factor because a student can have fun at any school if they are open to meet people. Students will have an amazing time at any school if they do two things: one is get involved, do not just sit in your room all day but take the initiative and be active. Second is learning to balance your school life and your study life. If you can do these two things you will be fine in college.

What's unique about your campus?

It being a church of christ school with an amazing education program and it is smaller than state schools!

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

A friendly Christian enviroment that is unlike any other place on earth. It feels more like a family, small and close.

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

I would tell students and parents alike that they should not only look at the academic prestige of the school or even the price. Those things both can be determined by the students? ability to desire to learn and to put themselves through college. One thing that many forget to look at is the environment; look for things like what the people are like there, the community, the values, and the closeness. After all is said and done you will get a college education that is good from most universities, and you will eventually pay off all of the loans, but the things that will have the most impact on you in your life is not the classes you take or the money you saved, but the people there. The teachers that became friends because you were so close with them; and the unforgettable bonds that will last a lifetime with the friends you made.

Describe the students at your school.

Most are very nice and friendly, but honestly, things that should be kept between friends often reach the majority of the student body in a short amount of time.

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

Make sure to consider all of your options when trying to choose the right school, but honestly, you will know when it is the school for you. As for making the most of your college experience? Don't limit yourself to a certain group of people or a certain type of interest. College is a time for widening your horizons and it is a great way to find out what you might like, or to make new friends!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you don't think you could handle serious conservative Christian emphasis, don't come here, you will hate it.

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

Freed-Hardeman University is an institution that teaches how to live and how to make a living while preparing a person spiritually.

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

When searching for the right college, parents and students should visit each campus they are considering and talk to a number of people there, staff and students. A person can learn so much more about a situation through actually conversing face to face. I would also encourage them to sit and observe the campus and how people are interacting with each other. After choosing a college, it is important to make the most of the experience. BE INVOLVED! If a person is paying to attend somewhere, he/she should get his/her money's worth. By being involved in the available social activities, he/she is not solely paying for an education but for an experience of a lifetime! Being socially involved allows for alleiviaton of some of the stressors in college. Who wouldn't want to be less stressed?

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about Freed-Hardeman University is the cost of tuition. The college experience here is absolutely amazing, but the cost (being for a private institution) is outrageous. Without scholarships and other financial aid, I would not be able to attend here.

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

My school is a church of christ affiliated school. This makes it a unique school in that its so loving and like one big family. And you also don't have to worry about a lot of the trouble with alcohol and drugs that some places have.

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

Make sure that you pick the school your heart is telling you too. If you aren't happy there it will affect your whole outlook on life. There is no reason to pay all that money for school and not enjoy where you are.

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

The worst thing about my school is that I feel that the restrictions placed on us are a little extreme. The curfews are a little early and we're treated like little kids. Sometimes I think they could let up a little bit on the rules.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The christian values. There is a strong focus on learning about God and serving Him. But also, the school is know for finding a spouse. There is no other opporitunity like this to find a christian mate, so they focus in on that a little too much sometimes.

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

The advice I would give those looking for the perfect school would to be to find a school that fits them. You shouldn't look for the best programs or the type of place that has the people you want to be like. Those things to not determine happiness and overall success during a student's college years. What is important is feeling like you belong. Go visit the campus and spend some times there. Talk to the students. Go to the classes. Look to see if you feel comfortable in the surrounding and the social enviornment of that school. Nothing will make your college experience worse than realizing that you made the wrong choice, and being too late to do anything about it. My advice would be to find a place that will not only prepare you for a successful carrer, but will also prepare you for life.

What's unique about your campus?

The large concentration of fellow believers in the body of Christ. There are so many poeple here to help encourage me and keep me focsed on my goals.

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

Make sure that when you choose your college, you stay on campus for a few days and see what activity is like during school days AND on weekend. This place needs to be somewhere that the student enjoys 24/7 7 days a week!

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

Where i play sports its hard to be involved and everyone is very tight knit with social clubs and church groups. Its hard to get involved when you have curfew and so many other regulations that make it impossible to ever go out with sports.

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

Freed-Hardeman is a 4-year institution dedicated to helping people pursue their career goals as well as help them maintain a healthy growing spiritual life.

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

In order for a student to find the right college for them, one must first determine what they are looking for in a college like student/faculty relationship, average class size, extra curricular activities, sports teams, cost, location, values, etc. Students will be able to make these decisions through recommendations from peers or alumni, visiting the campuses, being put on admissions' mailing lists, visiting their websites, etc. Basically, one should apply to all the schools that one has a half an interest in and let the school sell themselves to him. Parents that are a part of this process would of course be more concerned with the college's location and cost as well as their acredidation. Parents can easily find this out by visiting colleges with their child or visiting the colleges' websites. A student can make the most out of their college experience by maintaining a balance between school-work and their social life. Academics are importante because, ultimately, the student is there to get a degree toward their career choice. In addition, one's social life should be maintained because college can also be an opportunity to make life-long friendships and meet one's potential spouse.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is recommended for any person associated with the church of Christ beliefs though not limited to. If one is eager to pursue a career of their choice will studying with people not affraid to express their religion, very friendly, and looking for friends and a spouse, than this is the school.

i would tell them to choose a place where they feel they belong. Choose a place that shares the same values you and your family share. Choose a place that is right for you.
