5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved almost all my classes. My teachers have been passionate about their subjects and engaging in their teaching. Even the really challenging classes have shown me that every teacher really does want to see all of their students succeed. The choices for classes are diverse, many times it is hard to choose what to take because so many sound interesting. You are highly encouraged to take various types of classes to become a well rounded student.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've not yet had the pleasure to go to the career center on campus as I have only completed my freshman year so far. But I know upperclassmen that are more confident than not that they will find a job after school. A lot of students go on to grad school and I know that most students get into a good grad school because of their diverse education at Hendrix.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is small so I am never really far from my dorm so I can get quickly back if I feel scared. But I don't usually feel scared on my campus. There are always others studying late in the library with you and you can always ask a guy to walk you back if you feel unsafe. We also have our own sort of campus cops that can drive you to your dorm if it is farther away or you feel unsafe. We have plenty of measures to keep us safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are older so some of the dorms, especially the boys dorms, are worse for wear. But the communities in the dorms are close and friendly. They are small so you get to know everyone and it's easy to visit a friend's room. Overall, the dorms may need to be renovated but the people who live in the dorms become close in that year that they live together as a community.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hendrix was the best choice for me, personally. The atmosphere is that of belonging and mutual support. Its open minded values and small size make it feel like a second home. Hendrix is always welcome to those with an open mind for knowledge and inclusiveness. I knew Hendrix was the right choice for me even before I started my first day.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hendrix is my home, I get homesick when I'm away.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We're seen as the best school in Arkansas so i think a degree from HDX will be beneficial

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: P safe are usually rude to students, and don't do a good job of making us feel safe

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't in the best condition, Im pretty sure mine is filled with mold and we don't have sinks in the rooms. However, the environment and the way that we feel like a family more than makes up for it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They have a classics program. Dr. Resinksi is my role model. I love everyone there and the environment is amazing

Campus Housing: Hendrix dorms are a bit old. However, the atmosphere is great and there is always something exciting going on.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: We don't have it (and don't want it). The lack of greek life is one of the best things about Hendrix.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: While many students are athletes, Hendrix has much more of an academic than athletic vibe.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Hendrix is a wonderful place. The students are intelligent, and the classes are rigorous and rewarding.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from Hendrix College holds a lot of weight when looking for job/internship after graduation. The majority of students will already have a job lined up before they graduate from Hendrix College.

Athletics: The athletics at Hendrix College are excellent. They just added football a couple of years ago, and the team has done great. The field is one of the nicest in the area. They have baseball, softball, lacrosse, all kinds of different sports. Fans attend just about all of these sports at home and many even travel to support the teams. The athletics facilities are top notch. Work out equipment is kept pretty new, and the facility is huge with all kinds of workout material.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Hendrix College has been wonderful. It is one of the best schools in the region. The administration really care that I succeed in my education. I am always able to go and speak with my professors and my advisor. They knew I needed more experience in writing papers and had me take Introduction to Writing, so that I could learn how to properly write papers. I feel welcome in all the school buildings. The students and staff are all warm and welcoming. I am also able to play baseball for the College and that has been a good experience also. I have learned to be a part of team and to also be a leader to other players. If I had to do it again, I would choose Hendrix College as my school. It is just an all-around wonderful College.

Diversity: It's not the most racially diverse but pretty accepting for the most part.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Average for a college campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors care about the students, the classes are challenging and subjective grading in subjects like English, make it difficult to get A's.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Hendrix College may not be for everybody, but for many students, it’s a wonderful choice. It’s a small school, which comes with both pros and cons. The downside is that there are less classes and majors to choose from, and that if you make any enemies, you probably won’t be able to avoid them until one of you graduates. The upside is that Hendrix is a tight-knit community where you’ll recognize many familiar faces on your way to and from classes, bonding over the popular annual events scattered across every students’ time at Hendrix. This community feel extends outside of the campus—alumni are friendly toward other Hendrix graduates, and even non-alumni in the Arkansas area generally have good impressions of Hendrix.

There’s always something to do at Hendrix, be it shopping at the ever-popular Walmart, taking advantage of the various off-campus dining options, seeing a movie, going to a club, or listening to a visiting lecturer. The faculty and staff are all friendly, caring, and truly devoted to helping you personally succeed at Hendrix. The food is great, with lots of options for even the pickiest eaters. The dorms can be crowded, but they’re also community-builders. Conway is a great small town, and Little Rock’s presence nearby doesn’t hurt, either, though Hendrix’s Central Arkansas location means some crazy weather and being in a dry county can be off-putting to some partiers. Public transportation may be nonexistent, but Hendrix makes it easy to have a car on campus, and many things are within walking distance anyway. When some of the biggest complaints about the school include the lack of proper drainage and the intermittent train whistles, you know you’ve got it made!
