4 College Junior

Academics: Professors will generally work with you, and curriculum is generally quite decent. It's relatively easy to register, and students have final control of their classes.

Diversity: Being a private school, there are many who could be considered intolerant of other minorities. There is a good bit of ethnic/ racial diversity, and economic as well. Politics, religion, and sexual orientation are somewhat less tolerant.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: While there is some drug and alcohol use on campus, it is against school policy, and is kept quiet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is like living with another set of parents that didn't birth you yet controls your every move. The custodians do their best in keeping the dorm clean, but lots of students do not care as much as they should. It almost like they know that it will get clean so why bother taking the extra mile and help lessen the stress. Some dorm moms make exceptions for other students

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wouldn't consider what Freed has as Greek Life. It is more like clubs with Greek names. It is easy to get in and they are friendly until two weeks later and they never speak to you again. There are cliques and your regular stereotypes. Phi Kappa is the redneck, country club who are extremely competitive and rowdy. Chi Beta Chi is the Christian club. They are complete die hard lovers of God to the point where they take to a new level. Theta Nu is the artsy club. That is usually the club all of the art majors and theater majors join. Gamma Tau Mega is where the hardcore game players. They are considered the sweetest club, but are weird and not people you hang out with on a regular basis. Xi Chi Beta is the fun yet chill club. If they don't want to do something then you can't force their hands. Then there is Sigma Rho. They are the snobs and socialites who families have a bunch of money and they consider their club the better of all the others. They are also nicknamed Sigma Hoes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletes are great here. Most only come to this school for the scholarship they received from Freed.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This was the worst decision of my life. Although this school expresses that they accept anyone, it is only partially true. Anyone can be accepted as a student of Freed-Hardeman but as far as being accepted into the school's student body, it is easier said than done. There has many times where those who weren't of Christian faith, Church of Christ or Baptist congregation they considered lower than the rest of the student body. The majority of the faculty members are amazing and will do anything for you, but a good percentage of the students are not so welcoming after the first two weeks of the school year. This is a perfect school for others, but it was far from perfect for me. It was a mistake to even consider accepting here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is extremely low due to the Christian environment. Our security is pretty hardworking.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes are challenging but manageable. My professors are very approachable and definitely care about me & my grades. I love the small classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The fact that I can get my MBA while I am getting my undergrad is awesome.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing could definitely be better. I hear guys complain about cockroaches a lot.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are good. School spirit can get crazy, but the main emphasis on campus is clubs when it comes to extracurriculars.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The environment here is awesome. It isn't perfect, but it is where I feel I fit in best.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus security is friendly and maintain a presence around the school. They can be called any time, day or night, and are always available to help. Even so, there is a lot of campus to cover, and when it comes in individual situations, students are mostly expected to fend for themselves unless they seek additional help from the administration. Despite what the school wants everyone to believe, there is no such thing as a perfect campus, and sexual assault is not unheard of, and drug use is occasionally found as well.

Compared to some schools, Freed-Hardeman is quite safe. There is very very little chance of being shot, mugged, or assaulted. However, the students are able to make their own choices, and bullying (especially cyberbullying) is not as uncommon as it should be.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The large majority of classes are excellent, including basic general education requirements. There is a wide variety of classes, though a lot of them build on entry-level classes, and thus have a string of prerequisites

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students who graduate from Freed-Hardeman seem to do very well following graduation. I have no experience with the career center, but I do know that the school occasionally hosts job fairs, especially for specific fields such as business or psychology.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Several of the dorms are becoming outdated, and a good number of them are scheduled to be demolished and replaced in the next ten years. That being said, they are mostly well maintained, and living on-campus is quite a delight.

3 College Junior

Athletics: While the administration promotes the school teams quite frequently, intramurals and club activities far overshadow the official sports.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: While it certainly has its flaws, Freed-Hardeman University is full of great teachers who genuinely want to see their students succeed. Granted, there are a few that couldn't care less, but if you work with them, even they will usually work with you.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Honestly, I don't know much about sports at Freed, but my review reflects what I can tell about sports.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Freed-Hardeman is an amazing school all around. Good academics and lots of choices for classes, very focused on spirituality and has a faculty and staff focused on Christianity with an overall Christian feel on campus, good professors, the professors' desire to help the students and they want the best for the students, etc.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
