Some of the more notable areas are described in further detail below: Student Activities At HSU, our Student Activities office plans and implements many activities for campus clubs and organizations as well as for all current and Prospective HSU students! Not only are there events consistently occurring throughout campus, but there are several student-planning groups that develop and use student leaders and their talents. Outside of campus events, HSU also has a thriving Greek Life as well as several other clubs and/or organizations that tie to academics, athletics, or special interests. Each Spring semester begins with a long list of blow-out events that grab the attention of students. This atmosphere of potential opportunities for involvement demonstrates HSU’s commitment to an inclusive environment and to the provision of co-curricular leadership opportunities for students. Intramurals and Recreation Intramurals and Recreation are intended for the entire HSU Community and primarily afford an opportunity for experiential learning through active participation. We serve to cultivate lifetime recreational skills, to integrate students socially in an activity setting, and to foster a spirit of sportsmanship and fair play among participants and spectators. Intramurals and Recreation offers a variety of opportunities for individuals of all abilities. Individuals and organizations participating in Intramurals and Recreation should do so with the attitude that good sportsmanship and fair play are an integral part of the activity. Campus Ministry Baptist Student Ministries is housed in the Connally Missions Center on campus. The BSM is staffed by a director and an office manager. The mission of the BSM is to minister to the spiritual needs of the students of Hardin-Simmons University. The BSM seeks to provide a context for spiritual engagement, formation, and renewal with the hope that all HSU students might have a fully developed relationship with Jesus Christ. The BSM provides both on-campus and off-campus ministry opportunities along with local, regional, and international mission experiences. In addition to these, the BSM provides regular spiritual formation experiences. The BSM also helps connect students with local faith communities in Abilene. A student volunteer leadership team organizes and carries out the ministries of the BSM with the guidance of the BSM director.
