Most students need help affording a college education. You can help fulfill this fundamental need felt by most students by supporting Student Scholarships.
Bible Teaching Program
Many students are drawn to Freed-Hardeman because of the strong spiritual presence that comes from the Bible Teaching Program. You can help students continue receiving the sound Biblical instruction they so strongly desire by supporting the Bible Teaching Program.
The Benefit Dinner provides you with an opportunity to not only help bridge the financial gap that many students face with rising tuition costs, but also to hear one of the nation’s leading personalities or entertainers.
The 2012 Benefit Dinner featuring Condoleezza Rice was our second best year ever, following George W. Bush in 2010. It was also the 12th year in a row that we have raised more than $1 million for scholarships.
Freed-Hardeman University is pleased to announce that the speaker for the 49th Annual Benefit Dinner will be former first lady Mrs. Laura Bush. The event will take place December 6, 2013. If you have questions or concerns, please email your thoughts to the Vice President for University Advancement, Dave Clouse, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is our pleasure to announce the theme for the 77th Freed-Hardeman University Lectureship (February 3-7, 2013), "We Will Serve the Lord: Conquest and Deliverance in Joshua and Ruth".
Joshua, Judges and Ruth tell the story of Israel's entrance into the land of promise and their victories and defeats in the long struggle to become a nation as God intended. It is a crucial part of the timeless story of God's faithfulness, and the choice for his people to embrace or reject his will. This year's lectureship will examine the great characters of faith and other figures who appear in this history and the lessons for today to be drawn from their lives.
We welcome all of you and thank you for helping Freed-Hardeman continue to have a
great Bible lectureship each year.
Thousands of church members come to FHU in February for the annual Bible lectureship. There are no fees required for attendance, however the estimated annual cost of the lectureship is $85,315. Become a lectureship sponsor with a gift of $250 or more. You will also receive a complimentary copy of the lectureship book.
Athletics is an important aspect of many students’ FHU experience. FHU is a part of the Trans South Conference in the NAIA. FHU currently competes in Baseball, Men and Women’s Basketball, Cheerleading, Men and Women’s Cross Country, Men and Women’s Golf, Men and Women’s Soccer, Softball, and Volleyball. Help our student athletes have the equipment and resources needed to compete each year for a conference and national championship.
Every building has a name and behind every name is a history of giving. Our most recently completed project was the Anderson Science Center, which officially opened its doors for use on August 22, 2012. The Anderson Science Center houses labs for chemistry, biochemistry, biology, microbiology, and anatomy and physiology. In addition to the larger classroom labs, six smaller labs are devoted to research. Faculty offices and a conference room are also a part of the facility.
The science center was named in memory of James R. Anderson and in honor of Rubye Anderson, parents of James T. (Tom) Anderson, at ground breaking ceremonies March 4. Tom Anderson, Columbia, Tenn., is the naming donor. He and his wife Jade are alumni of Freed-Hardeman and he is a member of the FHU Board of Trustees. He is co-founder and president of Capella Healthcare.
Our next capital project will be the renovation of the Old Main Administration Building. In the spring of 2012 it was added to the National Registry of Historic Places. Currently architects and engineers are putting together the blueprints for the renovation. The goal is to restore the common areas of the building, such as the lobby and hallways to their original state, and to update the classrooms and offices with state of the art amenities.

So no matter what college or school you choose to support your giving will allow students to learn from faithful men and women in their respective fields.
The Freed-Hardeman University Associates is a women's organization specifically designed to raise money for important FHU projects through membership and a variety of activities.
