I have mixed feelings regarding the time I spent at Harding and these only become more intense as I see my children grow older. Some of the best experiences of my life were at Harding but some of the greatest failures I have experienced were during this period. Harding is going to give you the same opportunities you will find anywhere in life and then some. YOU decide what to make of any situation and YOU alone will determine the success of the experiences you face if you attend Harding.

Although there will be some to disagree, academically the credentials of the University are well documented and the degree I received was exactly what I needed to reach my career goals. The professors in the School of Business are more than willing to work with students and almost all have more to offer than just academic theory. From my experiences they were successful in their own right outside the walls of academic pontification and this should be of interest to those looking for a mentor and someone who will share practical skills to succeed in business.

Those issues aside, most people are commenting on the “experience they had while attending Harding. Curious though how many of these negative comments are from seemingly unhappy students who were either forced there by their parents (big mistake parents) or from those that seem to have doctrinal differences (real or perceived) with the churches of Christ. I too thought the 12 -1 curfew at the time was restrictive and what 18-22 year old wouldnt but I digress.

If you want to skip class and spend time complaining about the restrictive rules then you can do this at Harding. If you want to ignore the opportunities and the free time you have to grow spiritually then you can do this at Harding. If you want to go to Greers Ferry Lake and smoke weed at Dam Site Park then you can do this at Harding. If you want to find some drinking buddies and party on Biel Street in Memphis after eating ribs at Rendezvous then you can do this at Harding. If you want to go to Smittys and pickle your brain on a Friday night then you can do this at Harding. If you want to waste an opportunity to listen and learn at the feet of great Bible teachers you can do this at Harding. If you want to resent the fact that you are “forced to hear Gods word then use that fact to justify immoral behavior then you can do this at Harding. If you want to sleep through every chapel service and not sing to or praise God then you can do this at Harding. If you want to set a tone for a young adult life that will damage your relationship with God then guess what…you can do all this while attending Harding University.

Conversely, if you want to learn at the feet of great Bible scholars and serve God through mission work you can do this at Harding. If you want to enrich your soul and spend hours studying the Word of God on your own or with the help of others you can do this at Harding. If you want to forge friendships that will last a lifetime then you can do this at Harding. If you want to surround yourself with people that love God and want to serve Him then you can do this at Harding. If you want to volunteer your summers and help out with younger kids that look up to you at Camp Tahkodah then you can do this at Harding. If you want to go fishing at Ramseys on the Little Red and enjoy the clean air then thank God for the time and opportunity to enjoy it, you can do this at Harding. If you want to go repelling off the cliffs at Riverside Park and see Gods handiwork then you can do this at Harding. If you want to go out to Sugarloaf and watch the sunrise or sunset and thank God that He has blessed you with the opportunity to view His creation then you can do this at Harding. If you want to begin and/or improve your relationship with Jesus in a way that will bless you the rest of your life and throughout eternity then you can do this at Harding. If you want to make the best out of the opportunities that God gives you, then yes you can do this at Harding.

Life is what you make of it wherever you are.
