5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The small student body makes Howard Payne University unique. My professors know who I am and are friendly to me outside of the classroom. It is very easy to contact my professors when I need help. I do not feel like just another face in the crowd.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the campus and the professors that work here. I just wish that financial aid would be more flexible on whether or not students can live on or off campus because most students cannot pay for the dorm or meal plans that the school makes us pay for.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had wonderful professors that I saw outside of classes as well as in class. They helped me so much and were friends while also being teachers.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't explored much, but prices for college students could be a bit pricey.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Considering brownwood is a small town, the options are decent but tend to get tiresome when those are the only ones all years round.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There is more leniency where it isn't needed and more restricken where is doesn't need to be.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Awkward and most people think they can only have fun with alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Its good, but sometimes they have a habit with not communicating.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus food lacks variety of the foods we need to be eating. Especially of there are those on specific diets or wanting to make a better option without paying for overpriced food at Fams.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its good as housing goes. For the girls, there is only so much a wall can block out. With the school changing to a more secular atmosphere, rules that are in place are non conclusive and are lagging especially with the constant updates to the dorm (and plunbing). But gives us good space and no community showers, only if closets were in a different spot in the rooms.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not provide off campus housing, but you can live off campus. There are few and far in between, but the option is there.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you're a vegetarian, the only restaurant that will cater to that is subway. If you're a health junkie ,the only restaurant that will cater to that is subway. Enough said.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: If you're looking to party, the dorms are not for you. It is strictly enforced, and will not be taken lightly.

There is also visiting hours and "christian hugs" as far as relationships and PDA goes. A lot of it has to do with a lack of maturity within the student body.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got the aid I needed, and the ladies are always kind and cooperative. They do the best they can to work with you. The only people that struggle with aid are the rich kids.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food: If it doesn't look like it can grow legs and walk away, it is smothered in grease and cheese.

The Caf: They no longer have to-go options, so you can forget eating if you have back to back classes. Their schedules are not flexible whatsoever, and they definitely need a thermometer to check their food!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are roaches that fly, silly rules that are overly enforced like not being allowed to put decorative tape on furniture. The furniture quality will vary. I guarantee there will be a problem with the plumbing. The same goes for AC/Heating units. There is no sense of privacy whatsoever.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Mostly white people. I am a transfer student, there are actually more Hispanics here then at my old college. Never the less Hispanics are a small minority. There are people here from San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth

2 College Junior

Majors: I am not aware of any internships available, if there are any they are not made well known to the students. there are on campus jobs though. Such as working in the cafeteria, library or gym.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There some days where the food is good other days the food sucks. That being said however they do offer pizza and hamburgers every single day. I personally get tired of their hamburgers and their pizza is to greasy. Fambroughs is a hybrid between subway and a taco place. Imagine eating subway but instead of using bread they use a giant tortilla.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I would much rather live on an on campus duplex or apartment then on the on campus dorms. I do not like the public bathrooms and showers.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There is a small movie theater to go to and some restaurants. A lot of people go to Abilene

4 College Freshman

Administration: I love this institution. They are very good at helping find housing and even helping find places to go and things to do.
