Hallowed Past Hopeful Future

FocusOpen any paper, read any Internet article, or listen to any television or radio show, and you know immediately that we face problems today.

However, it’s our hope through this email update of all things HLG that we can help share a little good news with each of you – updates on alumni, faculty, and the goings-on here at our alma mater.

As we wind down the 150th anniversary celebration of HLG, we’ve taken a very enjoyable look back at so many of our highlights here at the college, all the way back to our days just up the river in LaGrange, Missouri.  We continue to this day to be blessed with wonderful students and caring alumni, just like you!  While these have been great days, each of us knows deep in our hearts that days just as exciting lie ahead at HLG!

Please take a few moments and look through this page to read about our recent happenings at HLG – including our new student housing groundbreaking.  There’s more where that came from – if you’d like to find out more, just hop over to our main website, Click on the Alumni tab and you’ll be taken to our special section where you can sign our guestbook, record a change of address, or read Reflections online!  While we’d love to have you visit us on the web, better yet, stop by the campus and visit us the next time you’re near.  We’d welcome a chance to see you again and take you on a tour of our beautiful campus in full spring bloom!
