Hannibal-LaGrange University (Hannibal, MO), with the motto "Knowledge for Service" and a mission to provide an excellent liberal arts education in a distinctively Christian environment, is a four-year liberal arts institution fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. How HLGU Stands Out:
Unapologetically Christian. Our commitment to Jesus Christ is at the heart of who we are. HLGU is affiliated with the Missouri Baptist Convention (Southern Baptist). While many students are Baptist, most other denominations are represented on campus.
Diverse Academic Programs. Hannibal-LaGrange offers more than 30 majors on the baccalaureate level and several pre-professional programs on the associate level. An honors program is available for gifted and highly motivated students. Well-known for its commitment to fine arts, HLGU offers 16 varsity level athletic teams.
Just the Right Size. With about 1,150 students and a 14:1 student/faculty ratio, HLGU is sized right for personal attention from faculty and staff. Most classes have less than 20 students, providing for more interaction.
The campus, 100 miles north of St. Louis, is situated on 110 acres of scenic hills and woods on the bluffs above the Mississippi River -- only minutes from historic downtown Hannibal, within walking distance to retail stores and restaurants.
