Wall Street Journal Survey Shows FHU Students Pleased with College Choice

Henderson, Tennessee - Nov 14, 2019

Freed-Hardeman University students are better satisfied with their college choice than the national average, according to a survey taken by the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education. FHU students are also more likely to recommend FHU to a friend or family member than students at other universities are to recommend their choices.

FHU students gave the university their highest ratings when considering their interaction with faculty as a part of their learning experience. Other factors receiving high marks by survey respondents included opportunities for collaborative learning, application of learning to the real world, opportunities for social engagement, and an environment that inspires and motivates.

“The areas where we excelled in the rankings are at the heart of who we say we are,” Dave Clouse, vice president of community engagement, said. “It’s always good to have our work verified by a big name outside source.”

The mission of Freed-Hardeman University is to help students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship and service. With locations in Henderson, Memphis and Dickson, FHU offers bachelor's, master's, specialist's and doctoral degrees.
