CONWAY, Ark. (February 26, 2013) - Hendrix College appears on The Daily Beast's list of Amazing but Overlooked: 25 Colleges That You Haven't Considered but Should.

Here's how The Daily Beast describes Hendrix:

"The liberal-arts college with a student body of around 1,500 is known as one of the rising stars of liberal-arts education, and it also offers students a culinary flexibility, with woks and blenders available in the cafeteria for students to make their own recipes. Plus, students get a cake and staff serenade on their birthdays."

Founded in 1876, Hendrix College is a national leader in engaged liberal arts and sciences education. For the fifth consecutive year, Hendrix was named one of the country's "Up and Coming" liberal arts colleges by U.S. News and World Report.
