FHU was a blessing. I graduated and became a BSN, RN and would not trade my training at FHU for anything! The campus was expanding during my four years at Freed, but overall I feel that every facility met expectations. I was ready for the workforce when I graduated, and always had a sense of belonging at Freed! I would recommend this university to everyone. I am not Church of Christ, but I am a Christian. I did not feel out of place or pressured during my time there.

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!
My semester at Freed-Hardeman University was very interesting. This is my first time staying on campus and going to school out of my own city. The diversity there is good, the teachers are willing to work with you on your class work and grades. By its being a private christian school they don't believe in sororities, they have social clubs and they are fun. They all get together and plan trips and have good time on campus. Everyone is nice and kind, the staff are willing to check on you when you need and there is Chapel everyday that you must attend. The dorms are nice depending which ones you stay in I stayed in Dixion and the girls were nice I just didn't like the size of the room. If you ever decide to come to Freed please have some good scholarships and come in with playing sports. They only have basketball, base and soft ball, golf, track and field, soccer, and volleyball.
