Dear Hardin-Simmons Family Member,
On behalf of Hardin-Simmons University, I want to
extend a warm welcome to you and your family!
You should be proud that your son, daughter,
or relative has taken the collegiate step in his
or her life’s journey…and we are fully invested in
partnering with you on that journey! We will be
there through the successes as well as through the
more challenging experiences. We emphasize an
education enlightened by faith, as we are committed
to meeting your son or daughter “where they are.” In
fact, our educators – faculty and staff – are working
to create seamless learning environments where students can thrive and grow.
Specifically, Student Life is about…
Promoting Engaged Student Learning
Encouraging Spiritual Formation and Understanding Calling
Cultivating an Integrated Perspective on Life
Strengthening Campus Community
Designing Intentional Pathways that Foster Leadership
We will help your son or daughter get plugged in and maximize his or her
experience. We will build on the foundation that you have provided. This guide is
one of a number of resources you will receive, and it is intended to help students
and families identify how HSU will help students achieve their goals. I encourage
you to spend as much time as you can in our warm community.
As a father of four children, I know the sacrifices that you have made, and I know
how it feels to entrust your son or daughter to an institution where experiences
will have such a marked influence on his or her adult life. As a parent, I can
assure you that HSU is a place where your child will experience growth!
Dr. Dave Rozeboom
Vice President for Student Life
