More From Your Counselor:

Hi, I’m Alyssa Rasco, and I’m the Assistant Director of Admission & Recruiting and the Senior Admission Counselor for Transfers. I came to Hardin-Simmons in the fall of 2008, and I graduated in May of 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology and a minor in Biblical Languages.

Soon after arriving in Abilene, this West Texas town became home. I met a wonderful group of friends here, including my husband Logan. Abilene is the perfect setting to find a good church community and get involved, and there’s always something to do on campus or in town.

My education at Hardin-Simmons has changed my life and opened my eyes to new perspectives. A liberal arts university like HSU teaches you to think critically and beyond just the facts, which carries over to “real” life after you graduate. I was able to develop meaningful relationships and camaraderie with my professors, which is a privilege many other universities do not offer. Since this education was also “enlightened by faith,” I was also able to develop myself spiritually during the formative years that I was a student through community service and classes on biblical studies, theology and spiritual formation. I am so thankful that I chose HSU for my undergraduate degree, because it helped transition me to adulthood in a way that other colleges would not take the time or effort to do.

I loved spending my undergraduate years at Hardin-Simmons University and would love to help you get here in whatever way I can. Give me a call or email me if you have any questions, or come see HSU for yourself to get a feel for campus—it’s beautiful and worth a visit!
