More From Your Counselor:
Hi, my name is Jourdan Foran and I am the Hardin-Simmons Admissions Consultant for Fort Worth, Denton, Weatherford, Waco, Austin, Victoria, and their surrounding areas.
Throughout high school, I had a lot of different schools run through my mind as possibilities for my college experience. Some were larger state schools, large private schools, and some smaller private schools as well, but Hardin-Simmons kept coming up in conversations with my parents’ friends, my friends from church and high school classmates. After visiting the campus at the beginning of my senior year, and meeting all of the genuine administrators, professors, and students, I knew that HSU would be a great place for me to feel connected and grow as an individual, both academically, spiritually, and socially.
After graduating from HSU, I moved to Colorado and lived there for the past eight years, working in publicity roles for a professional sports organization, the publishing industry, and in marketing and public relations for a large non-profit. While I loved being in Colorado, the opportunity for me to join the Enrollment Services team at Hardin-Simmons came about unexpectedly, and I felt assured that the Lord was continuing to lead me every step of the way, so I jumped at the chance to come back to Abilene. It is a true joy in my life to interact with students and help them with their journey to, and through, college. I also earned my Master’s in Educational Leadership at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs last May, and see that as a worthwhile investment as I continue my career in higher education.
I’m excited to be here at HSU and truly want to help you, and your family, during this valuable and exciting time. Feel free to contact me at any point in the process. I look forward to working with you.
