Start early when searching colleges, study them. Take your time, it's a big decision. And when you get there, get involved!

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

Find a place that makes you comfortable, where you can be yourself. Don't go to a school just because that is where you friends are going. What I and my friends in highschool did not understand was that even though we were close friends when we graduated, we would go on to find new freinds in college with who we would be closer. So, I believe that it is important to find a place to truely be yourself, where you can make friends who are compatable with you.

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

The carrer counceling services are not adequate. They wait until too late to get involved with students and are not helpful with those students who don't fit nicely into a traditional career role.

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

FHU is a wonderful place that makes students feel like they are truely a part of something bigger than themselves. There is a strong spiritual emphasis that permiates every aspect of campus life. Students also have extensive changes to make friends and to find their niche.

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

Parents need to realize that the choice of where their child attends college should be made by the child. This is a huge step on the road to independence and success. Children need to realize the responsibility of such a decision, and understand that their parents will always be there for them, but do not need to be their crutch. Children must honor their parents, and in turn parents need to respect their children as their grow and learn from their own choices, their own mistakes, and their own revelations. The child must find a school that they can feel comfortable and excited about attending. Parents should fully support whatever decision is made, and always be available to lend a word of advise when asked for. If children are ever going to learn to experience life as their own individual, they need to step out there and just do it! Yes, it will be hard. Yes, they will make huge mistakes. Yes... they will gain perspective and a deeper wisdom of the world around them. Live life. Love all. Give everything.

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

Freed-Hardeman is a small, private, Christian school located in rural Tennessee, and almost everything about the school reflects those things strongly.

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

My advice to give to students that will be going to college is to find a school that fits their personal wants and needs. Make sure you research a lot about the college, such as its academic programs, major fields of study, location, atmosphere, and social life. All of these aspects are very important: find what you are comfortable with and what you need in order to attain your desired degree, and to make college an enjoyable time. Remember that the reason you are in college is to work, but make sure you enjoy what you are studying for your major. Have fun, but keep a good balance between schoolwork and social life. My advice to parents is to help their students figure out what they want in a college, and encourage them to achieve those goals. Helping students find what is best for them will make success easier and more enjoyable.

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

Freed-Hardeman is extremely closeminded overall, and can be very oppressive about it. New thoughts are completely discouraged, and anything different, at all, is "bad" and not accepted, usually referred to as "sin." It also prolonges adolescence, by not allowing adult students to be adults, such as extremely strict rules, and refusal to adhere to student's needs without their parents stepping in and doing it for them.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

For the girls, finding a husband. For the guys, becoming men and doing the best we can. For everyone, becoming a stronger Christian and becoming the best citizens and scholars we can.

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

Be prepared! Do your homework about all the schools you or your child are interested in. Be sure of campus security, that's especially important.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Really uptight, really liberal.
