4 College Junior

Academics: Being a Bible major is great. The students care about getting their work done and the faculty know their stuff and care about their students.

4 College Junior

Academics: Every professor is a member of the church of Christ. Some teachers will have a prayer in their classroom before we begin class or at the end. There is a wide variety of majors to select and plenty of electives to choose from. The workload is reasonable and there are plenty of places to study. The library is where most people do, but the dorms are usually quiet enough to study in your room.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Freed Hardeman issues at the end of the year a crime report to all our students. There were no sexual assaults, no violence related crimes, and no substance abuse crimes. There were three counts of possession of alcohol and five thefts. Crime is almost non existent on campus. There is a sufficient number of security personnel and everyone on campus feels safe.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is awesome. It has the perfect amount of everything. I enjoy being apart of the University Choral. We love visiting churches and singing for them and we're sort of like a big family. Our director is great too, funny, caring, and skilled as a conductor. Freed- Hardeman is probably the best because of the people that go there. Just about all of us cares a great deal about God and serving our fellow man. It's just the greatest!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Freed-Hardeman is an expensive school and unless you get a ton of alternative scholarships, you have to take out loans. Financial aid does what they can, but rarely are able to provide for the typical student their needs.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Freed-Hardeman's go-to sport, has to be women's basketball. They have the most turnout for their games and went to the NAIA national championship game this year. We also have men's basketball, soccer, baseball, softball, golf, and some other teams that I'm not quite sure of. The major emphasis that the school has in athletics is intramurals. Just about everyone is involved in intramurals throughout the year. Of our intramurals we have softball, ultimate frisbee, football, basketball, and vollyball.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are starting to get a little older except Sewell Hall, the newest guys dorm, but they are all suitable places to live. I can't say for the girls, but you become like brothers with the guys on your floor and we really enjoy each others company. Of the guys dorm, Farrow is the best. It's the only guys dorm that has community showers, but the rooms have a lot more space and you don't have to wait on someone to shower like in the suite style dorms, Sewell and Benson. Of the girls dorms, I've heard that Scott Hall is the best, but that depends on your own personal preference. Farrow also has the best dorm mom! But all of the dorms have great dorm parents.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Our campus is currently being renovated in several areas. We have a new gym, we've completed a new green space called the Bader Oval, where Bader gym used to be. There are tones of activities to do even if you're not in a club. We have two student centers, a theater, baseball fields, soccer fields, and tennis courts. We also have our own coffee shop and there is always plenty of plays, atheltic events, and other events going on during the week.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The Christian atmosphere is amazing. There's no way you won't leave without making close, life long friendship as well as become closer to God all the time.

College Junior

Greek Life: Freed-Hardeman does not have sororities or fraternities. Instead, our school has co-ed social clubs. Each social club has their own stereotype but there are great people in every club. These clubs participate in a rush week, intramural sports, homecoming, and a musical performance competition called Making Music. Clubs stay extremely active but usually stick to themselves except on certain occasion. While there are a lot of people engaged in social clubs, they're not for everyone. They are extremely competitive, and a few have leaders with big egos. Each club has a President, Vice-Pres, Treasurer, Secretary, Chaplin, Web-master, Missions Chair, Sports Captains, and Making Music Directors.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Around 80% of the students are members of the church of Christ. The school and its codes are based, first off of scripture, and then whatever is feasible for the university to run. We have many students who come from the surrounding ares that are not members of the church and many foreign students. The foreign students are usually brought in by our sports programs. Racism is not a big thing, nor is intolerance of anyone's beliefs.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Freed-Hardeman is a Christian campus. They expect their students to uphold a solid Christian character. Dress code, curfew, chapel, and not allowing opposite-gender visitation in dorms are few of the complaints I've heard, but they do not bother me. Almost everyone is nice and caring for one another and so while the rules may be somewhat strict, almost everyone is happy to comply.

4 College Junior

Majors: The administration as well as the rest of the faculty are incredibly helpful. You can tell that they actually care about your needs and are willing to do whatever they can to help you out. Registering and applying couldn't be simpler due to their cooperation with students and familiarity with the application process.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am majoring in Bible and love it. Everyone around me always has a great attitude and are willing to work hard to learn. The Bible faculty are very receptive and personable. Each Bible major must complete a field internship. The school provides plenty of opportunities and will help you find a place with ease.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Henderson is a small town. If it weren't for the University, there probably wouldn't even be a town. The campus is surrounded by family owned shops and restaurants and the campus is beautiful.

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

Greek Life: NO NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED FRATERNITIES OR SORORITIES

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.

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.
