Hendrix is a residential college. Living in a residence hall is part of the educational experience, just like going to class. You meet new people, encounter new ideas, overcome differences, and develop long-lasting friendships.
Student Health Services provides free healthcare to Hendrix students. Services are provided by an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) in collaboration with a local physician. The APRN provides basic medical assessment, diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries. Students who require services beyond the scope of the clinic will be referred to a local physician or clinic.
Hendrix student life means club meetings and movie nights, music and theatre, games and guest speakers, sports and student government. And that's just one week.

Hendrix is amazing because I got a lot of one on one time with my professors, and each professor had the ability to completely personalize courses. Each professor loved their field of study, and they were all strong teachers. I didn't love the lack of options that we had regarding course options because of Hendrix being such a small school.
I had a chance to experience a real campus life as well as greatly improve my English la language skills.
