Bobby from Drumright, OK
Haskell Indian Nations University is an awesome school for native students. Not only does it give under privileged kids a chance to get an education but it also has a great amount of American Indian cultures around campus. Haskell is a one of a kind college with many traditions and opportunities that can not be found at any other institution.
Brittany from Tulsa, OK
Haskell is a very good school to consider for people of Native American heritage. The faculty and staff are always willing to help and very supportive. The community is buzzing everyday with something to do and is right next door to the KU campus.
Alexandria from Lawrence, KS
Haskell Indian Nations University is a diverse campus filled with Native tribes that literally come from all over the country. It is a small school but all of the staff remain behind their students, putting student's first. Like any place else, Haskell is what you make it, which also comes with a lot of history.
Mikailah from Lapwai, ID
So far I would rate it about 3 and a half for two reasons. One: The food here is pretty greasy, like, all of the food they make is greasy, not only is that really really bad for you its also bad for your skin. And two: They got a lot of their papers messed up, Ex. The college paper for applications said, quote: Liberal Arts, Bachelors Degree and they only have an Associates, in which was disappointing.
Javonne from Lawrence, KS
A place full of diverse, friendly, and motivated students and teachers. The campus welcomes anyone, and everyone, that shows a genuine interest in bettering their life. H. I. N. U. doesn't stand for Haskell Indian Nations University, it stands for home, involvement, never ending possibilities, and unique experiences.
