FHU is great! If you come here, and you plan on majoring in something other than Bible, you're probably not coming here because of any phenomenal programs. Freed's strength is the emphasis of the students on social and spiritual life. If you're not a Christian, it can be difficult fitting in at first, but if you let someone know you're interested in becoming or renewing yourself as a Christian, you will find more than enough people who would be thrilled to help you.

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.

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!
