  • What is Stampede Week?

    Stampede Week is an orientation program designed to help make your transition to Hardin-Simmons University a smooth and comfortable one. Join us for this great opportunity to learn about HSU traditions, make life-long friendships, and participate in fun and exciting activities. Stampede is the perfect way for you to start your memorable years at Hardin-Simmons University!

    During Stampede, all new students are placed into teams led by two upper-class students who help them learn about Hardin-Simmons University's policies, procedures, expectations, opportunities and traditions. By the time classes start, new students have become a part of our HSU family!

    What are the Goals of Stampede?

    Our Staff's main goal during Stampede is to make every new students' transition to HSU as smooth and as welcoming as possible!

    Within this main goal, there are several individual goals that help prop up the main objective of Stampede:

    • Help new students to socially connect with key HSU groups
    • Their peers/other new students
    • Upper-class students
    • Faculty
    • Staff
    • Administration
    • Present HSU's Academic Expectations to new students
    • Introduce new students to HSU traditions
    • Create a fun and exciting environment to ease new students' transition to college

    How do we accomplish these goals?

    We achieve the above goals by doing the following:

    • Provide an abundant amount of social and fun programs throughout the entirety of the Stampede Program
    • Assign key upper-class students as leaders and support-staff for new students
    • Expose new students to Faculty and Staff through assemblies, fairs, and one-on-one interactions
    • Place key administration in front of new students at special sessions

    The fun starts August 21st, 2018!
