Freed-Hardeman University Offers FHU Promise Program, Paving the Way for Affordable Higher Education
In continuing its commitment to providing accessible and affordable college education, Freed-Hardeman University introduces the groundbreaking FHU Promise Program, designed to cover the financial gap for qualified students.
Freed-Hardeman University’s Loyd Auditorium holds decades of memories for alumni and friends of the university. It is the venue for such annual events as Lectureship, Makin’ Music, Horizons, RUSH, benefit dinners, commencements and a host of other campus activities including daily chapel. As plans are underway to renovate the 47-year old auditorium, the university is offering individuals the opportunity to name new seats in the building. The extensive transformation of the auditorium is part of FHU Next, an ongoing capital campaign for campus improvements.
The Second Annual Beyond BK Intern Recognition Dinner celebrated 27 Freed-Hardeman College of Business students who completed professional internships during the last year. About 100 people attended the evening, which was sponsored by HCA Healthcare and Vector Wealth Strategies.

The culmination of their efforts was unveiled at a ribbon cutting Oct. 24 prior to a dinner hosted by the College of Business for student interns.
