Hardin-Simmons University Reviews
Review Hardin-Simmons University
What I have liked about Hardin-Simmons University is the fact that the staff is willing to help students through any issues they may come upon. Rather it is helping you find scholarships, learning to adjust, or simply finding a way to make you feel comfortable in your new home they are willing to find solutions. The school, also, invest with its students. Any money that comes into the school always goes back into bettering the school to meet the needs of the students, staff, and faculty. I admire the idea of chapel, as well. Every Tuesday the school offers chapel from 9:30-10:10 am, which is a great way to connect with God, no matter how busy your schedule might be because offices are closed during this time. Overall, my experience has been great and I am glad to say that I have chosen Hardin-Simmons University as my home for the next four years of my life.
Coming to Hardin-Simmons, I was overall extremely nervous. Even though I already knew my roommate, I was still quite scared that I would not make any friends quickly. Not even entering my second week of college, I was already blessed with having a second family. I've gotten so many opportunities to preform at this school: I was a lead in the fall musical 'The Addams Family', the titular character of the first spring play 'Sylvia', and a supporting character in our spring musical 'GodSpell'. The professor genuinely care about the success of their students and are so willing to help us whenever we ask them to. The atmosphere of the school is so relaxing and it has already become like a home to me.
Hardin-Simmons is a small school where everyone is very welcoming and kind. The teachers are personable and are really there to help you and make sure you succeed both in and out of classes. I chose to come here because it was just the atmosphere I was looking for and it felt like home. HSU really has that sense of community and you're bound to always find someone to turn to for help!
