  • Very nice campus. Anyone round here likes to go to the Campus especially at Christmas and walk around.
  • I was a student, graduating and meeting my spouse there years ago and now I work there full time. I had not intended on coming back to work at Harding but plans higher than mine were made. So I can say that it is definitely a great place to get an education and a great place to work. Please realize it is comprised of people, and no matter how hard we try, people make mistakes. But the goal of the organization as a whole and the individual efforts that comprise this organization seek to promote a Christian-based approach to learning and growing.
