Review Hardin-Simmons University
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!
Hardin-Simmons is a smaller university located in Abilene, TX. I choose to go to Hardin-Simmons to major in exercise science. Once I graduate, I plan to go to their amazing graduate school for physical therapy. I am currently starting my second semester here as a college freshman. There plenty of activities and clubs to join. I love Hardin-Simmons because here, you can be or do anything. The professors I've had have all been amazing. They teach with such passion for their subject. One thing that I love about Hardin-Simmons is that we are always growing. This year they have started a men and women's lacrosse team. the coach accepted us if we knew how or play or not. He wants to grow the game in Texas.
