• A Message from the President

    Lanny HallWelcome to Hardin-Simmons University—an institution of outstanding education and Christian values.

    Hardin-Simmons University has a history of producing excellent graduates. How do you fit into this history? As a student at HSU, you become the point at which the past meets the future. You become who our founders had in mind in 1891 when they saw the need for Christian higher education in West Texas. Their plans were implemented to give you an opportunity for an excellent education fostered in a Christian environment.

    At HSU, you are privy to the wealth of tradition, heritage, and experience of an institution that has produced close to 24,000 graduates in more than 120 years. This strong history is enhanced by our progressive use of technology. Our classes, labs, and residence halls are equipped with the most recent technology available to provide students with the tools necessary for success in today's world.

    Most importantly, our faculty and staff are devoted to the strength of our university and the development and betterment of students. Throughout the history of the university, our faculty and staff have dedicated their lives to the Christian ideals established by our founders.

    We're a family here. Students receive individual attention in our small classes and are encouraged to grow both intellectually and spiritually. We invite you to visit Hardin-Simmons University and consider joining our family!
