Would you go to a College like this?

I have a friend that just started going to this private Baptist school in Crown Point Indiana. The name of the college is Hyles Anderson College. I have never heard of it before until she started to go there. So I decided to look it up and get some information about the school. Below is what I got off their website. Give me your opinon about it and if you would go there? MAYBE YOU WOULDN’T LIKE… OUR DRESS CODE Many think our dress code is too strict. Skirts above the knees are not allowed. Men must wear neckties to class and must have short haircuts. Young ladies may not wear shorts or slacks. OUR OLD-FASHIONED DISCIPLINE Young ladies are not allowed to go off campus unchaperoned. Young men and young ladies may not date alone in cars. Absolutely no hand holding or other intimacies are allowed between the sexes. There are date nights with bus transportation and adequate chaperones provided by the college. Student insubordination is absolutely forbidden. OUR INTENSE EVANGELISTIC ATMOSPHERE All faculty, staff, and students are required to go soul winning weekly. Students participate in the evangelistic ministry of the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, which builds its ministry around personal soul winning. An average of over 10,000 new converts were baptized each year for the past several years. OUR FUNDAMENTALIST EMPHASIS We are fundamentalists and use the term proudly. We believe in a literal Hell which has fire and brimstone and a literal Heaven with streets of gold. We stand for the King James Bible as the only Bible and the local New Testament church as the only true church. We believe in redemption through the blood of Christ, salvation by grace through faith alone, and the premillennial second coming of Jesus Christ. OUR SEPARATIST POSITION Absolutely no drinking, smoking, or dancing is allowed. No student is allowed to attend Hollywood movies, play cards, or participate in other questionable amusements. We do not fellowship with liberals, but instead take a strict separatist stand from the world and apostasy. OUR EMPHASIS ON CULTURE We believe in students? learning and practicing propriety. We oppose the paganistic, barbaric humanism that prevails on many campuses. We believe in refinement, dignity, courtesy, proper manners, and Christian grace. OUR EMPHASIS ON THE PRACTICAL We blend the finest of scholarship with the best practical teaching possible. We teach not only what to do but how to do it. Preacher boys are taught how to start churches; how to build buildings; how to borrow money from lending institutions; how to raise money and adopt a budget; and how to organize, operate, and perpetuate a New Testament church. Also women are not allowed to get a job off campus. i e mailed the school to get information on employment there. basically men are allowed off campus to get jobs. But, females on the other hand are not. They have a job Americall which is a telemarketing job that women are allowed to get jobs at. Women are not allowed to drive there by themselfs. Instead they are put on a bus provided by the college and taken there.

I grew up in that area. Not Crown Point itself, but in that area. I have heard of this college, and yes, they are strict, but it is a good college. I would go there myself, and gladly send my kids. Sometimes, such strisct discipline is what makes us great, think about the military if you need an example.
