Weekend Schedule

Friday, April 14

Academic Resource Center/Starbucks – 8:00 a.m. – 8:00p.m.
FHU Bookstore – 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Maroon & Gold Day

Take this opportunity to get a glimpse into college life at FHU. You will tour campus, learn about our academic programs, meet current students and faculty members, attend Chapel, enjoy lunch, 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.
