Harding is a very strict university and has many rules that does not enable you to be an adult. I transferred in from a state school wanting a Christian environment but what I got was, in reality, a lot of fake people who could be totally different than what they make themselves out to be. I was not pleased with the student life here BUT there are a few genuine students. You just have to find them.

The business department could be the best program at this school. They are very helpful and willing to work with you to understand concepts. The professors in the accounting department really do want you to succeed and take a personal interest in finding you a job after school. They have many "Meet the Firms" days where you can personally talk with different companies about their accounting positions. I think the only thing that this program is lacking is the AACSB accredidation and the only reason I would not go back to this school.

Final points on the accounting program:

Federal Tax I will definitely be the hardest class you have ever taken in your life - will prepare you for CPA

Prepare to learn a lot in Intermediate Acct II

Christian Business Ethics will blow your mind (most interesting class offered)

commentYour comment about the accreditation shows how uninformed you are. Harding has been accredited for many years by the agency that chooses to look at practical use of training. Why would you prefer an organization that wants primarily academic preparation for Ph.D. Rather than real world?
commentNothing she said was uninformed. This post is clear to me that she wasn't happy with the friendships and social life on campus! Thanks you! Someone like my post who offers that while underprivildged and non traditional students should get to attend, it IS the University's responsibility to offer theis great campus life and opportunity it advertises. Clearly I can see how she might not like our Spirirt life activities as she gets goaded for what can improve about the campus and curriculum. We love Harding University, just realize the campous is growing and the Internt helps u stay involved and collaborate on how we can do that. No one likes bullies!!! Sorry you had a bad experience to the writer above.
