If you wish to go to a school where white-middle class people who all align as conservatives; believe the same way and alienate those who are different than themselves, then by all means this is the perfect place for you. If you wish to not be allowed to think and speak your mind in any sort of spiritual way ladies- this is the place for you.

If you wish to be pressured into marrying at the ripe average age of 22 -there is no place better.. It is common to be married as a Junior and very common to be married by graduation. (Do yourself a favor: skip signing your life away to some individual who will most likely change and become someone else in two years and practice safe sex).

If you drink be prepared for interrogations where the Deans actually lie and falsify that they have information to ?catch? people and get students to "nark" on one another. If your gay be prepared to go to counseling because changing one?s orientation is favorable. And yes, you are alone other gay students are forced to live in a dark closet. Girls and guys cannot be together at houses off campus unless there is a chaperone who is over 25 (an exception being a married couple-even an 18 y/o married couple). So if you can legally bang one another in the eyes of the Lord then you are capable of being responsible for individuals older than yourself.

The straight, white, male is the ultimate status quo so do everything you can to become this or marry it. There is hardly any minorities represented. While the school is accredited and overall academically sound the staff is less than lack-luster. Bible professors interpret the Bible any way they choose. Daily chapel is a joke however the singing is beautiful. All truth goes back to the Bible it doesn?t matter what the Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Buddhist, or hippies believe because the BIBLE IS TRUE. Don?t you get it there is NO OTHER WAY.

Many of us that decided to attend Harding were indoctrinated at an early age by our parents and churches who enlightened us with the idea that we need to be educated with other close minded individuals and perpetuate our believes on one another and hopefully find someone to marry that is exactly like us so we can then in turn reproduce and raise our children in the Church of Christ.

While at Harding I met wonderful individuals like myself who saved me from the misery of other miserable people. You will meet exceptional individuals who will become your life long friends who are also trying to make sense of life: you will meet and you will party balls together and explore life the way any American should only do, the only difference between you and other students is that you can?t get caught and you run a risk of getting kicked out.

Last bit of advice : Don't go to Harding. Go to a State University where you will save tens of thousands of dollars, discover true spirituality and have an unbiased education!

responseMy major was social work and i could not agree more with what you say here. The social work teachers were pretty good when i had them, but my praise stops there. I did meet a wonderful women. but i must say you should probably go somewhere else.
