The Brand

In 1916  Mildred Paxton Moody, a Simmons College undergrad, started the HSU school newspaper, The Brand, and it has been in publication ever since. In Fall 2019,  The Brand was moved from print to online publication. It now resides at www.hsubrand.org and on Instagram @hsubrand.


The Bronco, HSU’s yearbook, has been a tradition at Hardin-Simmons University since 1908. Archived editions can be found here: West Texas Digital Archives.
