Henderson State University (HSU) is a public liberal arts university in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.[3] Founded in 1890 as Arkadelphia Methodist College,[4] it is Arkansas's only member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges.[4] Henderson's curriculum is based on the belief that a liberal arts education is essential for all undergraduates; to that end, all of Henderson's majors require the completion of a core group of courses in the arts and sciences.[5] The school owned and operated radio station KSWH-FM until 2014, as well as the local Public-access television cable TV channel, HTV on Suddenlink's channel 9.
