Resume Assistance and Evaluation To have a resume reviewed or to obtain help getting started, contact the Office of Career Services through the Career Services website ( www.hsutx.edu/student-life/career-services/ ) by clicking “Talk to a Career Advisor Now” during normal office hours. We can offer assistance online and provide live feedback or we can set-up an appointment to meet in-person. Career Events and Workshops A listing of upcoming career events, workshops, and job fairs is available from the Career Services web page. Chapel Requirement The purpose of chapel is to enlighten by faith the Hardin-Simmons community through worship, service, and dialogue. Chapel meets Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. in Behrens Auditorium. HSU students are required to accumulate 80 chapel credits in order to graduate. This averages to 10 chapels per semester. Students can check chapel credit balances at HSU Central. If attending chapel is extremely difficult because of circumstances, students may petition the Chapel Advisory Committee to waive the chapel requirement. Students should be advised that very few are granted these waivers, and the committee meets only once a semester. The Registrar’s Office determines the deadline for when graduating seniors must have chapel requirements fulfilled. Chapel credits are prorated for transfer students based on the number of hours transferring in. Contact the Registrar’s Office for further information.
