Hastings College is a private, church-related, residential liberal arts college in Hastings, Nebraska.


The college was founded in 1882 by a group of men and women seeking to establish a Presbyterian college dedicated to high academic and cultural standards. Hastings College has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission's North Central Association of Colleges and Schools since 1916. [2]


The Hastings College campus consists of 40 buildings on 109 acres (44 ha). The college's first building was McCormick Hall, constructed in 1883 [3] and still in use today. More recent additions include the Osborne Family Sports Complex/Fleharty Educational Center, built in 2002; the Bronco Village student apartments (2005); the Morrison-Reeves Science Center, opened in late 2009; and the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center (2016). McCormick Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, and the historic core of the campus was listed in 2017.


Hastings College's athletic teams, the Broncos, are part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), primarily competing in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). Men's sports include baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, golf, soccer, tennis, track & field and wrestling; women's sports include basketball, bowling, cheerleading, cross country, dance, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track & field and volleyball.
