Howard Payne University Reviews
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.
I am so incredibly thankful I decided to go to Howard Payne. I don't have a favorite experience because there are really too many to choose from. From the many fun Greek life events and opportunities to the fun that I have had in band, being social and having fun has never been a problem. As for the classes, they are challenging because the professors push you. They really care about how you are doing in their class, other classes, and outside of the classroom. One of my professors would bring homemade pastries and coffee to every 8 AM class because 8 AM is too early if you don't have coffee! My largest class last semester was my general education history class. It had 20 people. It's fantastic.
