Missy Andrews, Rice, WA

“HMU gave me the opportunity to pursue literature and the Great Ideas by structuring a program that reflected my individual interests and goal. The university’s pedagogical approach of reading, writing, and discussion presses the student into conversation with the Great Authors and a community of readers and thinkers… I came away from my studies at HMU having imbibed the ideas of the Great Authors, rather than a group of scholars who claim to speak for them. I was challenged to interact with primary works, supporting my own understanding with textual references, rather than with secondary criticism.”

In addition, as a wife, mother, daughter, and teacher, flexibility was imperative; Harrison Middleton offered me a challenging course of study that complimented my lifestyle."

Adam Hazlett, Fenton, MI

"Twain claimed the classics as things everyone wants to have read, but no one wants to actually read; however, with my tutors and mentors at HMU, I was not only able to read these works, I was able to fully and wholly study and absorb them. HMU offered me both the academic flexibility and rigor that I longed for."

James Keller, Columbia, SC

"Studying at Harrison Middleton has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life. One learns to read more intelligently by asking interpretive questions and relying on the text for answers. The process of shared inquiry keeps the mind from becoming an echo chamber and opens up the text through the insights and questions of others. I am eager to resume my studies with HMU."
