Announces Partnership With Hardin-Simmons University

Christian university in Texas upgrades digital experience with student portal platform

DENVER, May 5, 2021 –, a contemporary mobile and web-based portal platform, today announced a new partnership with Hardin-Simmons University.

Hardin-Simmons is a Baptist university, founded in 1891 by Dr. James B. Simmons, a Baptist minister from the Northeast known widely for his abolitionist viewpoints. With the help of local merchants, ranchers, and pastors from the frontier town of  Abilene, TX, Simmons filled the void in an area where no higher education yet existed. The university has continued to honor a number of traditions that were established in the first years and emphasizes a close-knit, family atmosphere.

“A university that prides itself on a 12:1 student-professor ratio may not be expected to focus on digital communication. Hardin-Simmons sees the value of consistent messaging across in-person and digital landscapes. The last year has shown us all that meeting students where they are is mission-critical,” said Chase Williams, CEO at Campus. is a modern, cloud-hosted portal that connects people, platforms, and processes. The application serves as a dynamic, one-stop-shop on any device. offers an integrated digital community that increases engagement and improves the overall student experience.

“We were impressed by Campus’ ability to integrate with our key systems and lighten our administrative overhead while opening up new avenues of communication with students. Open and frequent communication is critically important to establishing and maintaining good relationships, especially in small communities. I absolutely see digital communication playing an integral part in our HSU community now and into the future,” said Travis Seekins, Associate Vice President for Technology Services at Hardin-Simmons University.

Students will have more ways to connect, both with one another and faculty, using Campus’ social functionality. Unlike typical portals, Campus allows administrators to have precise control over access and administrative rights, allowing individuals to share in content management and distribution. 

The team is thrilled to have the opportunity to assist Hardin-Simmons University in amplifying critical communications, connecting people to reinforce a sense of community, and enhancing business continuity.
