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.
My experience in Howard Payne has been exactly how i pictured it. Getting involve with sports, teachers, and classmates. Howard Payne is a small four year university that implements a great transition from high school to college. Not only do you get an excellent lectures by five star professors, but you build faith in god and his glory. Howard Payne is a great undergraduate school.
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!
