Weekend Schedule


Friday, April 5


Maroon & Gold Day

Take this opportunity to get a glimpse into college life at FHU. You will tour campus, meet current students and faculty/staff members, enjoy supper, and have all of your questions answered about life at Freed-Hardeman University! This event is designed for high school students (along with their parents), and college or university students that are considering a transfer. Each high school or college age student will need to register separately for this event. This is not your typical college preview day. This is Maroon & Gold Day and it is absolutely FREE!

This is also Makin’ Music weekend so be sure and reserve your tickets for the Friday evening show as you register for Maroon & Gold Day.

Starting February 20, you can register for the April 5 Maroon & Gold Day. Only those students that register for Maroon & Gold Day by March 15 will be eligible to request tickets to the Friday 7:30pm Makin’ Music show as part of their Maroon & Gold Day registration.

In the midst of the Cold War, two arms control negotiators stroll in the woods above Geneva,Switzerland in the late summer, away from the glare of the negotiating table. Although their personalities couldn’t be more different, they eventually develop a bond. This humorous yet tense tale is based on the real relationship between a Russian negotiator and his American counterpart. Stepping from behind the scenes, FHU Theatre professors Brandyn Graves and R. Cliff Thompson are featured on stage in this play. Directed by Hannah Graves.
