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.

3 College Sophomore

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

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Boys are not allowed beyond the dorm lobby in girls dorms and vise versa. You can only miss a certain amount of chapel per semester. There is a dress code.

Campus Strictness: It's more like a boarding school here, we get no privileges for being here. They treat there students like little kids. You could get a summons for practically anything here, as trivial as not signing out which could lead to suspension.

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: This campus is so strict. No drugs, no alcohol, no tobacco, no sex, you can't even be at a place that's main intent is to serve alcohol (such as the bar at Applebee's). Campus Security is very nice once you get to know them, but they will not hesitate to give you a parking ticket. Pretty much the theory is guilty until proven innocent here. The RA's vary, most are very nice and tolerant, others think they're dictators.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

First of all, FHU is a Christian university, so, of course, there are more rules than that of a public institution. There is a zero-tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol, with violations resulting in suspension or expulsion. Students are not allowed to engage in any sexual activity, either, which is also grounds for suspension or expulsion. Going along with that, there is no visitation in the regular dorms between members of the opposite sex. The apartment rules allow certain visitation hours within the day, but if a member of the opposite sex is caught sneaking in or out of a dorm, he or she will automatically get community service. In terms of dress code, students can't wear shorts to chapel/class, skirts/dresses have to hit the knee, and shirts must have two inches on the shoulders. All of these rules may seem overwhelming, but they are very helpful for students who are trying to learn in a Christian environment.

Chapel attendance is required. A student is allowed 12 skips in the semester, and anything over that is grounds for club/dorm restriction or community service. Also, if you are caught scanning someone else's card or if someone is caught scanning your card, you will both suffer the same consequences. Along with chapel, class attendance is also strict. Students are allowed to miss 25 percent of any class, but anything after that results in a grade penalty; however, most teachers start penalizing after four absences.
