| I had a great experience at Freed. Sure, there are rules, but unless you are a complete idiot, you know that coming in--every Christian school has rules and a dress code. Go to a state school if you don't want to deal with that. Most of the faculty are amazing; become good friends and mentors who I've stayed in touch with over the years. I met some of my closest friends and my husband here, and I felt really well prepared when I entered graduate school--way more prepared than many of my classmates who attended state schools. FHU isn't perfect, but no school is. I loved it, and I wouldn't trade the four years I spent here for anything. |

| I have noticed that many come to this private Christian university and complain loudly about the rules and regulations. They were not forced to attend this university. There are hundreds of other universities all over the country. Freed-Hardeman University is a school for those who want to receive an education in an environment where they won't have to be afraid of negative peer pressure. It's an environment for Christians. I come from a large city (Denver, Colorado), so it was kind of a shock to be in this small town environment, but I have definitely enjoyed it a lot. Having been around and worked with many, many secular college kids and hearing about their parties and the troubles they find themselves in all of the time, it was not hard for me to choose Freed-Hardeman. I don't want to be around all of that. I had enough of it throughout high school. The rules here help the students to keep their focus on why they're here! You don't come to Freed to party like a prisoner. You come to learn and thrive in a good environment. I advise you to come to Freed-Hardeman if you really want to be in a great, uplifting, and spiritual environment. |

Freed Hardeman is for a very certain type of person. If one wishes to not have a feel of the (i hate to sound cliche but i must in this case) real world then FHU is your place. |
The entire thought that not letting people do things that they are LEGALLY allowed to do, sheltering students from things such as BELIEVING A DIFFERENT WAY THAN THEY DO!! and dictating what an adult can and cannot with their life is absolutely ridiculous.
Henderson is the worst college town on Earth, no questions asked.
I had a curfew later in high school than I did at Freed.
I HATED that one was always assumed to be doing wrong (drugs, sex, rock and roll) if they were even seen in a situation.
The simple fact that Freed wants to make you think the "right way" is what gets me about the school. Unless you want to be back in Kindergarten for college...rethink it. However, if you enjoy having someone else think for you and dictate what you do, this is most definitely your place.
