Henderson State University Reviews
I love HSU! It's a very nice school on a very beautiful campus. The professors are very nice and easy to talk to, often times they would email you to be sure that you are on track with your school work. The students at the campus are all very sweet and helpful when it comes to finding my classes or having problems with some of my work. The Staff always made it possible for us to get in contact with them if we needed it, they were always available and easy to talk to. Overall Henderson State University is an awesome school and I would recommend anyone to come to our wonderful campus!
Henderson University makes college convenient. Not only do they have a campus in Arkadelphia but they also offer certain degree plans in Hot springs at the downtown Landmark building. This makes it easier for some students to attend a university and obtain their bachelor's degree. The only thing I would wish to see change would be better communication with transfer students. There were some issue with transferring my credits and making a schedule but it was all worked out!
Henderson is a great place to get an education! All my professors are extremely helpful because they care about student success. Staff, faculty and students are friendly. Nice atmosphere.
