Hardin-Simmons University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
You get a personal education at HSU. Each instructor is interested in you and wants to help you succeed. Advisors are GREAT- my advisor is a major reason of why I was accepted into medical school. Abilene is a little bit boring, but there are great people and a lot of campus activities. Extracurricular aren't as numerous as big schools, but there is still a good variety.
Hardin-Simmons University has a great small college atmosphere in a community that supports the college. HSU provides an academically challenging education based on a liberal arts foundation. A private university located in Abilene, Texas and is affiliated with Baptist General Convention.
This University is an excellent choice for many degrees in the liberal arts. For the sciences, besides pre-physical therapy, however, there was a huge lack of interest in actually preparing students for careers. Many of the classes were haphazardly done, mostly because of the professor in charge, who had no interest in actually making sure classes were taught properly.
The little campus was a haven for making good friends and trying new things not typically available at large schools. I got to compete in sports and participate in choir. I volunteered with a local horse therapy center. My adviser and professors were good humored and engaged with with their students. The atmosphere was inviting and cooperative.
Great education. Great environment.
My experience prepared me for life. I received a well rounded education in a great environment.
