Everyone needs a little rest and downtime, and 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.
