INTERFACE Orientation at FHU

AUGUST 19-26, 2023


INTERFACE is our Freshman and Transfer Orientation that takes place during the first week of school. It begins on move-in day and continues throughout the week. This is one of the greatest ways to start your FHU experience.

INTERFACE leaders will be contacting new students during the summer to give out information and start developing relationships. 

Marketing students in our College of Business programs become marketing specialists, proficient in marketing strategies, consumer behavior, leadership skills, business strategy, and marketing analytics.

We're excited to invite you into the Freed-Hardeman community. What's next? Once you have been admitted and made the decision to attend Freed-Hardeman University, it is time to reserve your place in our incoming class by paying your Enrollment Pledge.

The great thing about INTERFACE is that it is student-run. Which means our student body is excited about the arrival of new friends and faces on our campus. They plan and execute the activities as well as serve as mentors and friends to the new student class.
What is the cost?
There is no cost for INTERFACE. It is free to incoming students.
When does it start?

INTERFACE starts the day you move into your dorm. That gives new students four days to get adjusted, meet new people, and learn how to get around and function on our campus.
