Hardin-Simmons University

Abilene, Texas

Founded in 1891, Hardin-Simmons University (HSU) is a Christian university rated among the top private colleges in Texas. It offers students the chance to discover their God-given potential in an atmosphere that feels like home.

The beautifully landscaped campus is located in Abilene, a growing and vibrant community with a small-town feel and genuine Southern hospitality. The campus includes plenty of green space like Anderson Lawn, home to a reflection pond, gazebo, and trees that serve as an area for daily campus activities, hammock hangs, study sessions, and live performances.

Hardin-Simmons provides an education based on a liberal arts foundation, providing students with skills that employers desire in their top candidates such as critical thinking, strategic communication, and responsible leadership.

HSU offers more than fifty programs including business, science, engineering, and healthcare, which match industry jobs and prepare students through partnerships and internships with employers to help land that top job after graduation. HSU combines a rich and challenging academic classroom environment with hands-on experiential learning using real-world applications.

With a warm and inviting atmosphere, more than thirty organizations, and 25 intramural and club sports, students can connect with their peers through long-standing campus traditions or express themselves through the arts, music, or theatre.

Students have the opportunity for personal development by equipping the mind, spirit, and body through leadership training, spiritual formation, community engagement, and student-led activities.
