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.

Tips for prospective students
It is a very challenging atmosphere both in the classroom and out, be prepared to be challenged. Come prepared to learn.
Academic Rigor
The professors all have a great knowledge of the subjects they teach. They are very informed and up to date in their specific fields. The faculty and staff are always willing to help with assignments or anything that you may not understand. There are students who tutor in specific areas free of charge and the IT help desk will assist in any computer problems you might have.
Dorm Life
The dorm parents are always very nice and hospitable. They go out of their way to help if there is a need. In most dorms, each room can be customized to the way you want it. My dorm mom even bakes cookies or cooks a meal for us to all eat together.
Food and Dining
Students may choose from one of the meal plans which offers many different options that serve food in both the Dining Hall and the Lion’s Pride snack bar. The variety of food varies so there are many options to choose from.
What to do for fun
There are plenty of opportunities to go on mission trips in various locations, stateside and overseas alike. There’s even a Belgium program where students can travel through Europe for a semester. There is a swimming pool on campus as well as a movie theater.
Great for these types of students
Students who are also interested in growing spiritually. There is a daily chapel to attend. There are evening Bible studies throughout the week and always something going on.
Clubs and Activities
The social clubs, who maintain a friendly rivalry, usually interact with each other cordially and pleasantly. The members individually are open and friendly to everyone. I’m not in a social club, but I’m already friends with a lot of people who are. I think club activity only intensifies at homecoming and Makin’ Music.
Campus Safety
Freed-Hardeman University strives to provide a safe and effective learning environment for the students, faculty, and staff that are affiliated with our university. They provide on campus security officers.

Will learn a lot
I have been able to sit in on a few classes and was blown away every time! The teachers seem to be great and want to help you do well!
Will enjoy being here
Freed has a great christian atmosphere and lots of activities to be involved in. If it's just a devotional, sports, or whatever!
Bang for the buck
Freed can be a little more expensive compared to other colleges. But the christian atmosphere can't be beat and the education you will gain from Freed will better prepare you for the future. I'd rather pay a little more for a school like Freed than some community college.
Tips for prospective students
Start looking for money/scholarship/grants/etc NOW.
Get involved with and go to stuff going on at Freed like: Makin Music, Lectureships, Maroon and Gold Days, and everything else they have to offer.
Great for these types of students
Christians who are wanting to live the way God wants them to.
People who are looking for a good education.

I love the Christian atmosphere between the students and the faculty and staff. I like the small class size. The teachers are very willing to help.
Tips for prospective students
Get your financial aid in order before you check in. Get involved in a social club and bible studies. It's a lot of fun.
Academic Rigor
It's hard for me because I am dyslexic. But, the good thing is they have someone on staff to help with this problem. The teachers are all given a letter at the beginning of each semester about my dyslexia.
Dorm Life
Lots of fun. We all have a roommate. We have curfew. We have dorm devos.
Food and Dining
Gano-Cafeteria
Snack area
Coffee shop

FHU has it's own movie theater and coffee shop. FHU has social clubs. Devo's, bible studies. It's easy to make friends. If your family lives far away, there are lots of friends that live close enough that you can go home with friends on weekends.

People at FHU are positive and upbeat. The teachers will help you if you ask. Some staff an faculty have you in their homes.
