HSU Chapel

The purpose of chapel is to enlighten the Hardin-Simmons community

through worship, service, and dialogue as we encourage a love for God and


HSU students are required to accumulate 80 chapel credits in order to

graduate. This averages to about 10 chapels per semester. In addition to

attendance at chapel services, credit can be earned by attending plays,

recitals, assemblies, concerts, and various lectures. Students can also earn

credit through community service.

The chapel requirement must be met by the deadline for diploma cards

during each student’s senior year. If the student has not accrued 80 credits

by this time, he or she must make arrangements with the Registrar’s Office.

Failure to do so may result in financial penalties, having his or her card

pulled, or the inability to graduate until this requirement is met.

Baptist Student Ministries

The HSU BSM exists to minister to the spiritual needs of the students

of Hardin-Simmons University. We seek to provide a context for

spiritual engagement, growth, and renewal with the hope that all HSU

students might have a fully developed relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are called to love students, to serve students, and to walk alongside

them during their time at HSU. Students involved in the BSM do not

have to be Baptist (or any other denomination). We provide

opportunities for small group Bible

studies, community service, mission trips, and on-campus

worship services in addition to a variety of other

ministries facilitated by a student leadership team.

New students at Hardin-Simmons will find opportunities

created just for them. Our Freshmen Leadership

Council is composed of new students who are

looking for campus leadership opportunities.

Our New Student Bible Studies attempt to

address the spiritual needs of students

making the transition from high school to

college and from home life to campus life.
