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

Hendrix College is a school with an extremely motivating and intellectual faculty, a caring and personable staff, but a student population whose self-righteousness and self-importance make this 'liberal' university rather close-minded.

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

The most important thing to look for is a university that matches your personality both on a social and academic level; and there are universities out there of every possible social-academic ratio. What is absolutely crucial is that you also challenge yourself to grow as an individual on both of these levels: pick a university where you are capable of the social and academic standards, but that also forces you outside of your comfort zone. Constantly strive for ways to challenge your notions and ideals about culture, friendship, morality, and life in general. Don't get too wrapped up in one particular aspect of college life, whether it be social, academic or some other contingent. The most satisfying reward is to look back, several years later, and see the creation and evolution of a conscious, analytical and well-rounded individual. I guarantee, you'll be ready and capable for absolutely anything.

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

The faculty and staff are so personable and approachable that there is a great deal of potential for success, and the realization of one's goals and aspirations is always in reach - never behind closed doors.

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

I think that my visits were the most important part. When you find the right school you feel at home the second you step on campus. I thought it was too good to be true so I continued to visit colleges to see if I caould recreate the feeling, but it only happened in one place, and I am so happy that is where I chose to go.

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

The administration continues to raise tuition and make changes to the school that are better for their fiscal concerns than they are for those of the students.

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

A unique, liberal oasis in the conservative South that is rapidly undergoing changes to make it forgettable, and completely mediocre.

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

When you are looking for a college make sure that all of the people involved in the next four years of your college experience--other students, faculty, staff, and administration--share or are supportive of your goals. If the administration wants you to become a wealthy doctor or lawyer so that you can become a wealthy alumnus and donor and that isn't your goal, you may still feel alienated despite brillant professors and wonderful friends. A college that doesn't share your goals will let you slip through the cracks.

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

The fact that there is a complete disconnect in atmosphere/aspirations/goals/likes/dislikes between the staff & trustees who run the school and the students & faculty who live/work here. The administration could give two-shits about the environment (unless it got them good press). All the administration wants is a football loving, wealthy, conservative student body and instead they've got the bicycling, wealthy (but ashamed of it), liberal, hippy love children who want to free Tibet.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Hendrix College is best known for it's demanding yet supportive environment, as well as it's diversity and promotion of experiential learning.

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

Listen to yourself, not your friends. Only you know what college is right for you. Don't go somewhere because of your friends or your fears; listen (and follow) your gut. If you do end up going somewhere that a lot of your friends, or people you know from high school go ,then really get out and try to make new friends. Don't just hang out with them exclusively because it's comfortable. If you don't, then people won't reach out to you because they'll assume you've already made friends. Also, don't hesitate to get involved in student life as soon as you arrive on campus. Get involved with programs, or start your own! Become aware of all that your campus has to offer as soon as you can so that you can start taking advantage of it as soon as possible. Most importantly, enjoy yourself (responsibly of course).

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

The opportunities to travel abroad, and the frequent and unique themed parties.

Visit the campus more than once. And parents, don't worry about the partying. Every school has it, so it's up to the student how often they're going to participate.

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

They're introducing football as a sport in the near future.

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

Be sure to visit the school before you go. Make a list of all the questions you can think of and don't be afraid to ask them. If possible, try to visit the school more than once. Try the official guided tour and them maybe have a student show you around or spend the night as a prospect, so you can get a feel of the school from different perspectives.

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

I wish I had known how important reading ahead and being prepared for class is instead of just showing up like in high school.

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

How friendly and open the campus is. It's such a cool and laid back place, but at the same time people understand how to get their work done! The balance between work and play is great!
