I have not applied yet but i must say, when i visited the school last year i was absolutely amazed! Just being in the presence of such strength, acceptance, wisdom, and pride can really uplift a person and inspire them to pursue a long life of success! This is how i felt when I first got out of my mothers rental car when i visited the HBU. I would love to attend this positive, peaceful campus in the fall of 2012, and i encourage everyone to check it out!
