About Hendrix College

We’re the pioneers of experiential learning. Fact is, we were doing it before pretty much anyone else. In 2005, we formulated a four-year map of above-and-beyond learning experiences. Pick experiences in Artistic Creativity, Global Awareness, Professional and Leadership Development, Service to the World, Undergraduate Research, or Special Projects.  Through Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning, you'll connect what you learn in the classroom with the experience gained through hands-on learning activities, such as internships, international study, research, and service. 100% of students do at least three hands-on Odyssey learning experiences. We dubbed it Odyssey because it’s epic.
