Abilene Summary – The local atmosphere of Abilene is very well rounded! There are a lot of attractions such as the Abilene zoo, Dyess Airforce Base, and many historic places. Between three four-year colleges and a juinor college, there are all sorts of events to attend. There is a large variety of shopping and dining place for all types. The sports and recreation in Abilene is very important. There are all sorts of recreation to be involved in, whether it be playing, coaching, or just watching. Abilene is a part of the Bible belt; there are many great churches to attend and many Abilene citizens do. This creates a great environment to be in and many people stron gin their faith who are always very sincere and willing to help people in need. I fell Abilene is very good at giving back to it's community.

I just recently transferred to Hardin Simmons University and I absolutely love it here! Everyone is awesome, people go out of their way to help you, show you the ropes and what it takes to be successful here. I'm a Fitness Recreation and Sports Management major, the professors here are awesome! They have really shown me alot in such a short period of time, even if you don't have them for class they take time to get to know things about not only you but your family as well. Professors here have high names for themselves and are great recommendations.

Great Advising! I am a Biology/Pre-Med major, and the professors have been extremely helpful in getting me exactly where I need to be. The classes required for the biology major are tough, but they definitely are preparing me for medical school. My professors and advisors know exactly what they're talking about when it comes to their subjects, and to med school in general. We have an amazing (but small) pre-health club program, but since it's small, you have a better chance of holding office (which is good for the resume).
