5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Hendrix College is an incredible oasis of genuine hope in the midst of a beautiful Arkansas landscape. Hendrix encourages you to be fully yourself and gives each student the tools and opportunities they need to receive the best education possible. Hendrix makes it possible to do anything. The community is incredibly focused on service to the world as well as education that benefits everyone who comes in contact with it. A wide range of incredible degrees and professors that know you by name. A Hendrix experience is a personal one as well as an communal one. From the moment you walk on campus there is an aura of inclusiveness and community. I cannot say enough about how much Hendrix has changed my life and introduced me to the most incredible people. People are put off by its small size, but it is only a bonus. Having professors that know you and ask about how your life is going is priceless. I would go to Hendrix all over again, no regrets.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hendrix College is a primarily residential school, and I am an untraditional student. I will be starting my junior year in a couple of months, and I have a two year old son. The balance has made school harder, but everyone there, from staff to students wants me to succeed. It really is a family there. Senior year of high school when my principal knew I was considering going, invited me to his office to convince me, and will still help me if I need anything. Some of the guys and ladies in the cafeteria have worked there for over thirty years, they learn your names, ask how you're doing, become friends with you, and consider you family. They recognize people that come back to visit 20+ years later, and one of them has even given me holiday gifts for my son. The Deans and President of the college are almost ALWAYS on campus, and come up and talk to students regularly. It's not unusual to see one of the deans with his kids playing a video game in the student area or the president and his wife, who is also a professor, walking their dog on campus when not at work. It's the same way with professors, and not unusual to be doing your workout with one of them. The school encourages you to explore new things and classes with it's collegiate requirements, and you meet a lot of people with different backgrounds. The school has several international students, and half of my class alone is from out of state. There's no shortage of things to do on campus, and between going to club sponsored events and department talks, you could almost get by without a meal plan or buying food. If you're having trouble in classes, there are plenty of tutors and professors will work one on one with you, and it's typically not hard to get an appointment. Since the class size is kept smaller you can't be lost in the system, and I know that despite whatever might be going on, I always have someone in my corner to help me succeed.

Guys & Girls: We have a great variety of students on campus. Everyone is different and there are really no divides. We accept everyone for who they are and we all fit. There is a place for everyone here. Beautiful girls and hot guys.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are amazing! We have the best party scene plus every party is always in walking distance. There is drinking but there is no pressure to drink and thing never get too out of hand. Everyone really looks after one another here and we always have PSafe if needed. There is always a lot of dancing and socializing and great music. We have a bunch of themed parties which are pretty awesome.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is one of the best things about this campus. It is sooooo good and the caf workers are absolutely the best. I feel so at home and there are so many options. They serve everything under the sun!! If you have an dietary needs or allergies, there are no worries. I love the caf so much!!!

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Hendrix is very expensive but the financial aid department does everything they can do to help out and make sure that every student has the aid they need and deserve. The process is very smooth and my mom and I never have any problems. They are very understanding and every student is treated as an individual and they are very understanding of everyone's situations.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I absolutely love living on campus. The dorms are typical dorms with the regular college amentities. I live in Veasey Hall and the social atmosphere is simply amazing. The sense of community is great. Everyone knows everyone and if you ever need anything or need someone to talk to, there is always someone. The RA's are amazing and very helpful and sweet. I think it is very clean.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Breakfast is essentially the same sunday through sunday except for Tuesdays and Thursdays. Lunch and dinner always include a great deal of variety, desserts are always delicious. Dinner is served every night except Saturday.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Hendrix recently built a new athletic facility and it goes above and beyond in offering students options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Hendrix is a residential college and does not offer off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Conway is not Little Rock, so the options for dining out are not as diverse. But there are certainly a fair number of convenient and cheap eateries.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't know too much about strictness. Public Safety certainly does things well when their "service" parking spots are taken by students. I have seen a few cars being towed.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process was okay. It wasn't bad but I don't remember it being stellar either.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't enjoy parties and avoid them at all costs.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall is such a wonderful facility. In all my college searching and visiting, I have never come across such a vibrant and fresh dining space.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Despite some behavior on the weekends, campus life is great. Students are happy, the staff are friendly, the buildings are clean, the landscaping is top-notch, and the Hendrix Village is a thriving area. It can be a bit expensive once everything is said and done but it is a wonderful school nonetheless.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The openness to everyone having a good time and being a college student is great!

Scholarships: The process itself is good the ongoing process is annoying and having to go back and apply for more sucks

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I shouldnt have to apply to live somewhere and attend a college.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: i feel like if the people who were on campus protecting us would worry about actually protecting rather than give parking tickets watching movies and talking on the phone i would be a lot safer

Athletics: Its on the uprise of becoming a force to be scared of.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Seriously, I can't imagine having gone anywhere else. If you want a top education from challenging, thoughtful, engaging and interesting professors, Hendrix has it. If you want to compete in a DIII sport that you love, Hendrix has it. If you want to be in any and every club, from service to languages to outdoors to cooking, Hendrix has it. And if you want to have the best four years of your life surrounded by the most welcoming, intelligent, kind and passionate people, Hendrix is the place to be......and we throw great parties too. And Hendrix will get you a job, or at least an internship, right out of college.

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!
