Hardin-Simmons will hold its first Health Science Preview
Day on Feb. 16. Students interested in health-related fields will have the
opportunity to learn more about the health science programs at HSU. They can
also stay an extra day to attend Winter Preview on Feb.17.
During the day, students will sit in on a science class,
take a tour of campus, attend an academic fair and hear from a student and
faculty panel. They will even have lunch with the Dr. Christopher McNair, Dean
of the Holland School of Sciences and Mathematics.
Grant Greenwood, Director of Undergraduate Admissions and
Recruiting explained the rationale behind this new preview event.
“We wanted to have a more targeted event for
students who are interested in Health Science careers,” he said. “We thought
that connecting with them specifically would be the best way to showcase our
programs and all of HSU.”
The Holland School of Sciences and Mathematics
offers undergraduate departments in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Geology and
Environmental Science, Mathematics, and Communication Sciences and Disorders. HSU
also offers a master’s Physician Assistant Program and the first accredited
doctoral program in the state of Texas in Physical Therapy.
“We have such a diversity in our offerings
here,” said Greenwood. “From P.A. to P.T. to Pre-Med, our programs are renowned
across the nation. We also have very high placement and success rates in our
Pre-Dental and Pre-Health programs as well as in medical and graduate schools.”
100% of graduating students majoring in
Biology, Chemistry or Biochemistry & Molecular Biology in the Holland
School of Sciences and Mathematics who applied to medical, pharmacy, physical
therapy and Physician’s Assistant programs were accepted for the 2014-2015
