I can't give this university
over three stars despite my good education. The professors were great... I stay in touch with a lot of them. BUT... Every semester was a hassle with the staff in the cashi...ers office to get payment sorted with the financial aid office. They're right next door to each other but you would think they were in completely different states because their communicat ion with each other is zero to none. I'm still sitting here months after graduation trying to sort out a refund check from 3 years ago... it was exhausting to deal with them. Already a stressful time in life and the financial aid and cashiers offices made it that much more stressful. Here's a thought... maybe since they are an accredited university they should learn proper accounting techniques themselves before they allow students to try their hand at working other students' accounts. If you don't mind having to badger people to get your financials straighten ed out while paying MULTIPLE $250 late fees over things that weren't even your fault, then this school is for you. Sorry education and faculty, but the experience was greatly hindered by these faults. (Side note: why does the technology fee go up drasticall y every year, while the technology is stuck in 2002?)
My daughter, Kendra Leaks will be attending this school in the fall of 2017. We were just there for session 1 GO and it was so nice. You could never get lost or not understand
something because the pe...ople are so helpful in helping you with any problem. I can trust that my daughter will be in good hands and with the lord always. I just cant express it enough of how much this school touch me. Luke, JR, Clint, Mrs. Reed, Betnainy, Mon'Shear, along with others! My daughter told me, "mom, my heart is here." Enough said. Then, the Lord worked out miracles for everything to work out in her favor. We just lift your name on high, Lord!!!!!
What a joke of a university
. After 8 years we have to find out we owed money for my wife's summer school? We found out because she got a great new job and they could not verify her education. Furtherm...ore, everyone in the administra tion office has been rude and incompeten t. You're a "universit y!" Yet, you can't get this right? Never recommendi ng this place to any of my students.
My daughter Yasmin will be attending in the Fall. She just came back from having an amazing time at the Gen 1 camp. Looking forward to this 1st year college experience
Beautiful small university
. The concert hall is amazing.

knew you by name. I was not a number but a person. Treated each of us like family with much respect. Dr. Phillips, was not only my advisor, but my mentor!! Class of '84.
I am going to study at HBU next spring because it is a great University
. I encourage people to visit HBU and study there!
I loved my years at HBU - great school! I was lucky to study with the original faculty, but I'm sure the current faculty is inspired! My daughter graduated from HBU 30 years after I did -- she enjoy...ed her experience
We had a great time the music an dancing was marvelous.
Plenty of booths to buy all sorts of things however there wasn't enough activities for children.
It's an awesome college to further your education so much and their love for you as a person.
