Golden Year Reunion

Join us June 17 - 19, 2015 for the Golden Year Reunion

The Freed-Hardeman Golden Year Reunion is for anyone who attended or graduated from Freed-Hardeman at least fifty years ago (in 1965 or before). We would love for you to come back to campus to reconnect and reunite with friends.

This year we will recognize the anniversary classes of 1965, 1960, 1955, 1950, and 1940.

Come see old friends, hear lessons presented by Dr. Tom Holland '51, Dr. Clyde Woods '56, and Dr. David Powell '81, and help us share your FHU story. 

Everyone is invited, so join us for FHU's Golden Year Reunion.
