We have a pretty mixed group here. Christian, non-Christian, athlete, book worm, black, white, hispanic.... the list goes on and on. I really believe that there is a niche for anyone and everyone here. Everybody kind of just does their own thing, some dress up for class, others just get out of bed and go in the pajamas and its great because nobody really cares! Most of us are from towns in Texas, but we do have a fairly large group of students from all over the US who came for sports or because they have a family member who is a Howard Payne alumni. It's really interesting meeting new people and finding out how they got to this small school that no one has ever heard of.
Students are so friendly and accepting at HPU. I went to UMHB before I transferred to HPU, and there is a world of difference in the student atmosphere. It is so community based, and people hang out all the time. Students are from all over, have different personalities, and different hobbies, but on the whole we all interact and get along great. We are mostly just average college kids looking for a good time, and looking to love the Lord and do His will. I LOVE MY FRIENDS, and I hang out with several groups of people. It's always a party.
The students at Howard Payne are welcoming, enthusiastic, cheerful, and down right friendly. They will lend a hand when you need one without you even having to ask. When you're having trouble in a class they will automatically help you if you need help figuring something out. When there is a test coming up they set up study sessions, so everyone will get the information they need. They are all just good people in a very good environment.
My classmates are sociable and easy to get along with, in most cases.
I would describe my classmates as friendly overall.
My classmates are my friends.
Fun, good workers
