Internet Outage in Searcy Impacts HST Community

August 28, 2013 | Written by Matt Carter

Internet service went out on the Searcy campus on Monday. AT&T is working hard to resolve the issue, but as of yet they have not given us an ETA for repairing the problem.

Although our internet service is not affected on the Memphis campus, we rely on various services provided by servers in Searcy. This has impacted our online learning environment, Canvas, as well as school email addresses, and registration and other Pipeline services.

There are two major implications:

1. Students, do your best to do your work! Faculty will not hold students responsible for turning in assignments on Canvas while Canvas is down.

2. If you need to contact someone at HST, email is not reliable right now. Please call, use social media, or use a non-HST email address.

Chapel at HST

August 21, 2013 | Written by Matt Carter

chapel

Chapel is a special time of worship and fellowship at Harding School of Theology. HST students, faculty, and staff get together for praise, prayer, and a message from God’s word. Because we are a small, graduate-student-only campus, there are many opportunities for students to participate. In fact, chapel is coordinated by the Student Association Vice President.

Speakers for chapel include faculty, staff, students, and guests. Students in preaching classes will deliver sermons on assigned topics. A highlight this past Spring was having faculty members share their spiritual journey. At times, guests will speak via Skype from distant locations.

Chapel meets in the Pittman Chapel 11:00 – 11:30 each day with morning classes. During the typical week chapel is Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and daily during intensive weeks.
