I want to thank this school for giving me a chance to further my education. I am also afforded the opportunity to play the sport I so love, football. Yes, I have to go to class and even though I did not score very high on the entrance exams, HPU said, "still you are welcome." Thank you!!! If I could change anything, I would ensure more athletes would come here. It is expensive and I pray that I am able to remain.

I love the school! It is a small campus and great fro people who don't like big crowds. I personally would tell everyone to go to Howard Payne, but I'm just biased. It is so much fun and everyone who love it!
