Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
I transferred to Harding and have had a wonderful experience.

Academics: Generally speaking I have found that they have done a great job, but that really just depends on the department. I spend my time in the Psychology department and I absolutely love all of my professors. All of them want to be on a first name bases with their students, encourage students to come to their office to get to know them, are active in the school, and some will invite their smaller classes over to their houses for dinner. I really could not have asked for a better group of faculty members.

Social life: Yes, it's a private Christian university. Yes the people that give the school money get to choose what building they want it to go too and have some say in the rules. But, it honestly isn't a big deal. Anyone with a brain can figure out how to get around most of the rules if they want to. You will not find a huge party scene at this school, but to say that there aren't people who party and do everything the school doesn't want them to do and never get caught is just naive and obtuse. Anyone who says they haven't found people who they can get along with and that all students at Harding are strict "fire and brimstone" Church of Christ kids have clearly not met a very large sect of the campus that disagrees. On the other hand, if you are expecting to talk about how hungover you are on a Wednesday or participate in a campus wide 4/20, this isn't the place for you.

Honestly, no matter what university you go to, there will be peers and faculty you get along with and don't get along with. You will always find people complaining about the Internet, food, administration, and financial aid. My advice, go visit all of your prospective schools and choose the one that you had a moderate-good experience with, that gives you great future opportunities, and lets you leave with the least debt possible. Everything else is really just up to you.
