What Students Are Saying

4.37 Average Rating
Prospies: come visit the campus, you will fall in love with it. When I came to Hendrix for the first time the summer before my senior year of high school I was so impressed. By the time I was applying for schools I already knew that Hendrix was my very first choice, no doubt about it. So I really reccomend coming to visit, being here is the real end all. And you can come spend two days here and sleep in a current student's dorm room to get the full experience. I never did that, but it's a really awesome program and I definitely recommend that.

Apply for every scholarship you can find if money is an issue; especially if it's the final factor in whether or not you choose Hendrix. The money is worth it. Take the ACT as many times as it takes to get a 32 because then you've basically paid for college if you can keep up your grades.
Samantha from Conway, AR
Study hard because it is not an easy college and professors will not pass you without your dedication to the class.
Pay attention in lectures because more than likely it will be on the test.
Make friends with the cafeteria workers and any workers because it is such a small campus that if you ever need anything, they are willing to help you out in any way they can.
Go to tutoring if you have trouble. It is why they have tutoring, for students in need.
Get involved.
Desire from Sallisaw, OK
Be prepared to be challenged in ways that you would not normally anticipate. Hendrix is a place that has a place for everyone, so many students find it hard to actually take time out of their day for much-needed studying if they don't prepare. The teachers are wonderful, but the classes can be extremely challenging at times, so even if a class LOOKS easy--- it's a trap! Just keep studying and you'll be fine.
Also, get to know the Dean of Students. He's extremely likable, looks like Will Ferrell, and loves knowing what students are up to. Worried about breaking the ice with him? Ask him why Will Ferrell looks like him!
Scott from Malvern, AR
Apply early, even if you aren't sure that you want to go to Hendrix. There is always the chance that you apply late and you aren't let in!
Katey from Greenfield, IA
Definitely do not underestimate this schools standards for it's students because of it's relative obscurity and kind of party atmosphere. I've learned that the unofficial motto of most students here is Party hard and study harder.
Cassie from Ipswich, MA
Meet with professors that are in your interested major/minor. They can tell you what to except for the next 4 years if you do take that route.
Caitlin from Fort Smith, AR
Prospective students will always find that everyone at Hendrix is there to answer your questions and help you out in life. One of the first things incoming freshman observe is that upperclassmen never get tired of sharing their knowledge of the campus! Everyone loves Hendrix because it has everything you need to make your college experience great!
Lauren from Highland Village, TX
Ask your student guides whatever you want; don't be afraid or shy. Also, if you decide to come here, get your housing form in quickly!

Take the Hendrix Experience if you are looking to attend Hendrix, it is awesome. Meet with Department Heads and talk to them about your future educational plans. Start Early to create your financial package.
