3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of fast food and locally owned restaurants, but most close around 10pm.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Either hot or cold, few days in between. Lots of rain, which is a personal turnoff.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Other than a few hot boxers, drug use is nearly nonexistent.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Diversity for the sake of diversity is hypocritical, but the school is quite accepting of all backgrounds. We do not have much diversity, but that doesn't mean it's not welcome. We have many international students who cannot go home often, and are welcomed by fellow students and faculty.

Politically, very conservative, though not a very politically active campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors want to help you succeed/get to know you.

Plenty of leadership opportunities.

Christian environment is encouraging, but not overbearing.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are lots of scholarships available, but it is kind of up to you to get in there. Reapplying is quite annoying, but he aid is available.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Small town charm is the way to describe Henderson. Lots of local, mom-pop shops and restaurants. Not much night-life, but Jackson is 30 minutes away, and it's the fifth largest city in the state.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great professors, standard curriculum, easy registration process.

All professors are experts in their fields and have real-world experience in said field.

Classes are easily acquired and dropped.

4 College Sophomore


All Greek life on campus is coed and really inclusive. Any major events/competitions are organized or heavily participated by the social clubs.

College Sophomore

Transportation: Small, pedestrian campus has no need for transportation, as all buildings are within a mile radius.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most dorms are great.

Guys: stay away from Benson. It stinks and is always flooding or malfunctioning in some way.

Girls: Dixon is old, but has character.

Other than that, dorms are all pretty great: lots of fun, clean, dorm supervisors are awesome, and within central campus.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Serious, monogamous relationships are stressed here. Decent attractiveness on average. Many rednecks, but not exclusively; many preps too.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of affordable choices.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The rules are strict, but clearly stated. There's no deception involved.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: No crime, save a few pranks.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We offer a variety of athletics at our school. We do not have a school football team. Many foreigners come to our school to play sports. Most students participate in intramural sports. We offer intramural softball, flag football, frisbee, basketball, and volleyball.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The nearest city is Jackson, TN which is thirty minutes away. Their isn't much variety in activities or attractions. Most students find our campus life boring.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Our school is unique because it is a private Christian School. We have Chapel everyday. We are required to take at least one bible class a semester. We have a very positive environment at Freed. Classes are small and teachers develop person relationships with their students.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: All of our campus buildings require student id cards to enter. The dorms are locked at all times. Our campus security officers drive around campus at all times. They are easy to get a hold of and are very helpful and friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Our schools does not supply us with laptops, however they do supply iPads. We rarely use our iPads for academic work, so a laptop is necessary for students. We are given fifty dollars a semester for printing paper. The wireless access is reliable and fast.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Freed-Hardeman does not offer my major, Speech-Language Pathology. I need to transfer in order to obtain a degree. A lot of students are bible, education, social work, business or criminal justice majors at Freed.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It is very easy to interview for an internship at school. Jim Brown is in charge of the job search department. He is very helpful and gives great advice.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Our weather changes quite frequently. We have cold winters and hot summers. Spring and Fall are very nice. It does rain occasionally but not an overwhelming amount.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Our campus is small, so most people walk from place to place. No local transportations are offered.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants near school include Jacks, Taco Bell, Burger King, McDonalds, Sonic, and Pizza Hut. Most of these are cheap, unhealthy fast food chains. Most restaurants offer student discounts and are low priced. If you want to have more variety, you must drive to Jackson, which is 30 minutes away.

Almost all FHU students are proud of their school and wouldn't change their college choice. This small campus that is nestled in a small town in Southwest Tennessee is more than a college to its students; it's home and a place where one can feel loved and accepted. FHU focuses on a Christian education as well as an education that will help its students succeed in the business world. The University's mission statement is "Teaching how to live and how to make a living," and the faculty does just that. All of the faculty and staff are members of the Church of Christ and are true examples of what a Christian should be.

Because FHU is such a small campus, it's hard to walk around and not recognize most of the people you pass by. While many college campuses are very large and home to thousands of students, the reason many students come to Freed is because of the small size, along with the Christian atmosphere and endearing faculty. FHU offers a warm feeling to its students, something that is very unique for a university. Students are safe to walk around at night, leave their purse or laptop unattended, or sometimes to even leave their dorm room door unlocked. It's rare to find a place with so many young people who are honest and who are sincerely trying to do what is right. Of course, no place is perfect, but FHU sure feels close.
