2017-2018 Student Handbook

Page 1 of 107 Updated 1.25.17 Student Handbook Dear Students, On behalf of the faculty and staff of HSU, we welcome you to the Forty Acres! Since 1891, we have been a community dedicated to providing excellence in education enlightened by Christian faith and values. Paul’s letter to Timothy tells us that we are to s tudy to show ourselves approved unto God as servants who, because of our straightforward dealing with the word of truth, have no reason to feel any shame. We hope that at HSU you will strive to uphold the highest traditions of the mastery of truth and its application to yourself, our Abilene community, and as you graduate and go out into our global society. Our faculty and staff are committed to offering you a caring and supportive Christ-centered home where to stretch you intellectually, socially, and spiritually. We pray that you make the most of every opportunity to grow and thrive in all of your college experiences. Some of these experiences will shape and push you in new aspects of personal, social, physical, and spiritual development. This handbook contains information on services, activities, policies, and procedures that will clarify our expectations for you as you develop. If I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to stop by my office on the second floor of the Moody Student Center in Office 210, visit our service center on the ground floor in the glass office or email me a t smartin@hsutx.edu . May God richly bless and grow every area of your life here at Hardin-Simmons University. With joy and anticipation, Stacey Martin Dean of Students
