I enjoy the Christian atmosphere. Friendly students and caring staff. With the smaller class sizes the Professors are able to focus on the students. They all are open and welcome visits to their offices. It is a pretty campus, up front. One major drawback is NO football team. The Basketball teams do VERY well. The athletic players are well supported by staff and students, but NOT given easy grades. The food could be better. There is a nice movie theater for students. Could use a little more stuff in the student center to keep students on campus and not off looking for inappropriate things to do. This university is located in a small rural TN town with nothing to do off campus. Luckily there is a nice size town about 30 mins away that has a lot of fun things to do. Many alumni stay in the area. Great place to go!

Freed-Hardeman University provides a thorough education and an environment that provides compassion and understanding. The teachers are highly informative and willing to share their understanding of the subject with you, upon the unwritten agreement that you are willing to provide a, at minimum, decent effort. One major compliment I can give to Freed-Hardeman, is that you are not abandoned into classes that expects you to already have a master understanding. The teachers understand that college is a very difficult transition that requires someone experienced to guide you through the beginning processes.
I loved Freed-Hardeman University. I must say that the diversity of the school is disappointing when considering religion and race, but I understand that is the reason many of the students come here. I think we should be challenging ourselves more and what we believe, however. The PEOPLE here are amazing. I have found amazing professors here who are willing to do anything to help you succeed.
