Erika from Keller, TX
I really enjoy visiting Freed-Hardeman. The faculty is very good and will be sure to keep in touch with you! If you ever have questions don't be afraid to e-mail or call your counselor.
Terrissah from Oakland, TN
There is a solid Christian atmosphere. It’s a good place to grow spiritually because you can have that spiritual support and, at the same time, be challenged on your beliefs. I would highly recommend Freed-Hardeman University.
