A Historic Year of Celebration

FocusThe end of the year has come – the end of our 150th year! We’ve had a year-long remembrance of our first 150 years helping to educate and encourage tomorrow’s leaders as they head out into the world, reaching a day our eyes may never see. However, as we remember the past, we look to tomorrow as well. This summer, our campus is bustling with activity, long after the students leave for the year. Builders for Christ, Sports Crusaders, Super Summer, World Changers, and other summer missions camps are part of our campus for the next few months. Campus improvements continue to take shape, and Fletcher Hall construction is proceeding at lightning speed on the north edge of the campus.

But that’s just the short-term future. At HLG, all of us stand with our tiptoes on the edge of tomorrow. A new class of freshmen students is preparing even now to make HLG a home and educational foundation block for their lives. Our Building for the Future campaign continues to gather support, both from alumni and new friends and supporters as well.

As we head into the next 150 years, we invite you to be a part of the growth, both physical and spiritual, that we see as part of our shared futures, together. Stop by and take a tour of our campus, meet with our personnel, and get connected into the excitement we see happening on our campus. We start the next chapter of HLG’s storied history today!

In The News @ HLG

The city of Hannibal was a bit more crowded on Saturday, May 9, as several hundred of out-of-town guests came to witness their loved ones graduate from HLG.
By the fast pace of construction happening on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University, you would think an episode of the ABC television series "Extreme Home Makeover" was being filmed.
80's ON THE 8th
You still have time to reserve your spot for the "Eighties on the Eighth" alumni event scheduled for August 8! We are inviting the classes of the late 70's and the decade of the 80's to join us for fun and fellowship on the HLG Patio.
With an impressive college record - 82 points total in three seasons, Trojan Men's Soccer player Kevin Zimmermann has embarked on a new challenge to prove he is ready to take his game to the next level.
