• Welcome from the President

    Eric Bruntmyer

    It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Hardin-Simmons University!

    At Hardin-Simmons University we believe that all of our students were born for great things! Our university aims to challenge and equip students to answer two questions that our founder, Dr. James Simmons, asked himself over 125 years ago:

    "What is the greatest thought that has ever occupied your mind? What is your duty toward fulfilling it?"

    I believe that these two questions will give you a small glimpse into the heart of the Hardin-Simmons family. We believe that our university exists to help our students discover the answers to these essential questions, because at Hardin-Simmons University the "greatest thoughts", biggest ideas, and dreams of our students matter.

    I invite you to prayerfully consider investing your time and thoughts with us as a student at HSU. We know you were born for great things, and we sincerely look forward to your beginning a life-changing journey with us at HSU!

    God Bless,

    Eric Bruntmyer
