HSU is not only about academic excellence, it is a community where people are genuinely concerned about one another. It is also a place to grow spiritually, where an open dialogue can take place about God, ethics, and morality. The goal is not conformity but maturity. We want students to leave HSU with a spiritual foundation that looks beyond the easy answers. So that when they face their crises of belief, they have what it takes to persevere and prevail. This also means that we want Baptist students to leave inspired to be great Baptist leaders in their churches…and Methodists students to be great Methodist leaders, and Catholic students to be great Catholic leaders, and so on. At HSU, your education is not complete until it is “enlightened by faith.”
