Freed-Hardeman University is committed to creating an environment of academic achievement and excellence. Classes are held in a variety of facilities including the historic Old Main (built in 1907), state-of-the-art Anderson Science Center (built in 2012), which offers expanded laboratories, research facilities for students, and areas for focused study. Our commitment to technology is featured in our Brown-Kopel Business Center (2004), which houses Information Technology, and in our Bulliner-Clayton Visual Arts Center (2007), which houses the Mac lab for graphic design, darkrooms for photography development, and individual studio space for senior art majors. Even our older facilities, the Gardner Center and the Associates Science Center, have undergone recent renovations to make sure that our students are being taught in quality facilities, and that they have the resources needed to be successful.
Outside of class, students are encouraged to take advantage of academic support facilities such as the Loden-Daniel Library which houses our collections of research materials, microfilm strips, journals, and private study areas. The HelpDesk in Brown-Kopel provides support for all of your technological needs. For club officer groups, the Student Board Room in the Crews-Colbert Activity Center provides a professional and official space to make many decisions.
Health and Fitness
Freed-Hardeman University is committed to providing an on-campus environment that encourages physical health and fitness. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to take advantage of the on-campus Rogers, Conger, Dodd Health Clinic and the various organized athletic activities in the form of physical education classes and intramural sports.
Students, faculty, and staff are provided free access to the university’s various athletic and fitness facilities. Everyone is welcome to utilize the gyms on campus (basketball courts and racquetball courts) as well as the intramural fields, to start pick up games of basketball, volleyball, softball, football, rugby, ultimate Frisbee, and many other activities. There are also options in the Brewer Sports Center and on Main Street for weight rooms and workout facilities. In addition to all this, the University offers six tennis courts, a walking track, and other options for physical activity.
FHU has invested in spaces specifically designated for student recreation and relaxation. The Burks Student Center, located just below Wallace-Gano Dining Hall, is full of couches for lounging and studying, televisions, ping-pong tables, and student mailboxes. A second student center, the Crews-Colbert Activity Center was recently purchased and renovated for student use. In addition to the couches, pool table, televisions, and video games, the “Crews” was designed with students in mind and has a formal board room for student meetings, large upstairs rooms for Makin’ Music practices and other committee meetings, and the Offices of Student Life. On the weekend, students are invited to come and take advantage of our two full-screen movie theaters to watch recently released movies, college sports, and other movies or events as requested.
During nice weather, many students head outdoors to the campus Commons to study or to hang out with friends. Others might head right down the road to Mid-South Youth Camp to experience the newly opened Frisbee Golf Course. Those with a love for the arts are welcome to catch all campus productions in the Black Box Theatre, while those who enjoy getting outdoors might take a short drive out to experience nature at Chickasaw State Park. When you need time to relax, you’ll find a variety of places to unwind across campus and around Henderson.
