Hendrix College says

Welcome to the Hendrix College website. I invite you to browse through the site to learn more about our rich heritage, today's students and faculty, and our goals for tomorrow.

Hendrix is a recognized leader in engaged liberal arts and sciences education. With our commitment to hands-on learning offered in a demanding yet supportive academic environment, Hendrix is making a difference in the lives of our students and the world. Hendrix is a college that engages students in the active pursuit of knowledge. Our students work closely with their faculty mentors, shaping their learning experiences to reflect their personal interests and challenging themselves to stretch beyond what they thought possible.

This commitment to engaged learning is part of the history and fabric of Hendrix College. It is now the cornerstone of a curricular initiative called Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning. Through Odyssey we guarantee that every Hendrix student will have at least three specific active learning experiences, drawn from six categories. In addition to the personal benefit students receive by linking critical thought with action, Hendrix will also provide an experiential learning transcript to each graduate. We believe this credential is a valuable addition to our graduates' portfolios, whether their next move in life is to continue their education in graduate school or to enter the workforce.

I encourage you to participate in our virtual tour, and then visit our campus in Conway. In addition to our outstanding academic programs, Hendrix also offers a variety of cultural events that are open to the public, usually at no cost. Feel free to come to campus, walk through our park-like grounds, and attend a play, concert or lecture. I hope to have an opportunity to welcome you to Hendrix in person soon.
