General Information About Hastings College
For 125 years, Hastings College has remained faithful to the vision of the Presbyterians who founded it in 1882. They envisioned a College dedicated to the liberal arts and the Christian faith while offering high academic standards. These values have continually helped Hastings College students excel in all facets of life. What drives this excellence is quality students, dedicated faculty and a goal-oriented administration. Hastings College is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA), but its students represent most denominational groups. The historic and sustaining philosophy of Hastings College incorporates dedication to the highest standards of academic endeavor within the broad perspective of the liberal arts and the Christian Faith. Committed to this philosophy, the College strives to provide an environment which challenges students to: 1. Develop intellectual, critical, creative, and communicative skills that provide the basis for learning, personal growth, and expression. 2. Acquire a knowledge and understanding of the history and the cultural achievements of humanity, as well as a sense of values reflected in a responsible commitment to God and society. 3. Respect and appreciate the achievements and identity of each human being. 4. Prepare for a life of service, creativity, curiosity and change.
