What is the Student Bible Project? 

Student Bible Appeal.jpg

Thank you for supporting our students and cheering them on!

Our founders believed wholeheartedly that we should help bring young men and women to Christ, teach them of Christ, and train them for Christ. As we celebrate our 130th year, this purpose still stands. Hardin-Simmons remains firmly committed to providing an education enlightened by Christian faith and values.


Since 2013, Hardin-Simmons alumni have provided over 4,500 incoming students with a custom Bible, at no cost to the student.


This Bible symbolizes the beginning of their faith journey here at Hardin-Simmons.


This year, we invite you to join other HSU alumni to help make this tradition possible. For as little as $17.50, you can help us ensure that every incoming student will receive a Bible. In each Bible, we include a note that tells the students that the alumni and friends of Hardin-Simmons are praying for them.


“My HSU Bible reminds me that I am not alone as I grow in my faith and pursue my education.” 

Sarah Palmer, HSU Class of 2022
