Hendrix College

A liberal arts education isn’t easy. You don’t just “learn a little about a lot.” You read, think, write, argue, change your mind, and shape your unique view of the world. You constantly discover. It happens in lectures and labs, in recital halls and residence halls. It happens on the playing field and in field research. It doesn’t stop. That’s Hendrix.

In 1876 Central Institute, which was to become Hendrix College, was established in Altus, Arkansas, by the Rev. Isham L. Burrow. Burrow was serving as a minister in the Methodist Episcopal Church, South (now a part of the United Methodist Church) at the time.


Hendrix College cultivates empathy, creativity, self-understanding, rigorous inquiry, informed deliberation, and active learning across the liberal arts, toward the development of the whole person. Through engagement that links the classroom with the world, and a commitment to diversity, inclusion, justice, and sustainable living, the Hendrix community inspires students to lead lives of accomplishment, integrity, service, and joy.

Housing services

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.

Medical services

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.

Student Reviews

Amazing classes, few options
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.
