Who are we?

Logsdon is rooted in the vision of HSU’s founder James B. Simmons, a Baptist pastor who fought to end slavery and to educate all students regardless of race, gender, or religion. Given this rich heritage, Logsdon values diversity, welcoming men and women from all backgrounds.

Emerging from our Baptist heritage, we focus on the centrality of Scripture, service in and through the church, ethical living, and freedom of conscience.

What are we doing?

We provide students with the Logsdon Experience. In our community women and men develop life-long friendships. Students learn from excellent faculty through a variety of means that spill out from the classroom into hallways and coffee shops. Logsdon majors go on pilgrimages to Ireland, minister to children in Peru, and explore the land of the Bible. In the church they lead worship, teach small groups, facilitate youth retreats, and preach the gospel. Within communities they serve meals to the homeless, mentor at-risk children, and share God’s love with those who suffer.
