    For the amount of money that students pay to the school, students could have a little more given back to them in the process. 3 stars for the current situation but the current plans for the construction of additions to the school should make everyday life and opportunites worth while.

    Hardin-Simmons is top quality in my opinion. It is a private school, so it is fairly expensive, but they work with you and help you find scholarship money if you ask.

    Hardin-Simmons has frozen tuition which means, whatever you come in paying, tuition wise, you pay that same amount your entire educational life here at HSU. You don't have to worry about tuition increases and things like that. It is a huge blessing for people who come from families living paycheck by paycheck, or those who rely on financial aid.

    You get so much more than just an education at Hardin Simmons. But the education will prepare you for life unlike many universities. HSU has 100% acceptance into Pre-Health programs, and employers around the world seek graduates from Hardin-Simmons.

    You definitely get your bang for the buck at HSU! The tuition rate at HSU freezes after your first year so you never pay more!
