Alumni Privileges

The HSU Alumni Association was established in 1896 to promote the continued well-being of the University. Over 20,000 graduates and former students comprise the Alumni Association of Hardin-Simmons University.

Led by a 22-member Board of Directors, the Association exists to promote and maintain lifelong friendships among its members and mutually beneficial relationships with the University.

Upon graduation, alumni immediately become members of the Association. Membership is free, and the privileges are many. Membership is for life, and the Office of Alumni Relations is here for you.
