Howard Payne University Reviews
I am currently in my second semester at HPU as a freshman. I think the academic aspect of the school is great. The professors are not only extraordinary in communicating their lectures, but they are also admirable as people. They truly understand what it means to be a role model for the students. The academics are great, it is in the social aspect where it is not as amazing. The school is very small, just a few hundred more students than my high school, and there is not a lot of activity or diversity. I would like to see more random events and activities put on that people would actually attend. The safety here is fantastic, the DPS presence on the small campus makes you feel protected along with the services they provide. For example, I locked my keys in my car and they lock picked my door and had my keys to me within 10 minutes. Overall the school has great academics, but the social atmosphere needs improvement.
Howard Payne is a wonderful school for academics, activities, social events, and grad school readiness. I would, without a doubt, pick Howard Payne if I had to choose again!
Howard Payne feels like a very tight-knit community full of people who genuinely care about one another. Professors are understanding and treat students as individuals and put more effort into helping them succeed as individuals rather than only preparing them for the next exam. I love it here. Howard Payne University feels like home. Department of public safety keeps us feeling safe with their constant patrols around campus.
