• Living Learning Communities

    What is an LLC?

    Being a part of a Living-Learning Community is an opportunity unlike any other at Hardin-Simmons University. Your educational experience will be enriched through a community that shares similar academic interests. Students live together in select areas of our residence halls, participate in one common course per semester, and engage in specific events that encourage dialogue and service.



    The Business LLC provides first-year students with the opportunity for an early connection with other business students in a supportive learning environment. While completing both business and general education courses, students will engage in co-curricular activities that apply directly to the field of business.


    The Education LLC offers first-year students a chance to learn what it means to empower others as a professional educator. By participating in this LLC you will strengthen your ability to instill community in your own future classroom.

    Exploring Majors

    Crafted for those with undeclared/undecided majors, the Exploring Majors LLC provides first-year students the opportunity to discover their passion and calling. You can anticipate an environment that focuses on exploring various majors and minors while completing General Education courses and gaining the skills to be successful in a collegiate atmosphere.

    Health & Wellness

    The Health & Wellness LLC is designed for first-year students interested in the diverse field of health sciences, with an emphasis in the exercise sciences. As a member of this community, you will explore the interaction of science and faith in order to equip your leadership in this dynamic field of study.

    Pre-Health Sciences

    The Pre-Health Sciences LLC is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in medical health professions.
