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 email@example.com.
It is our pleasure to announce the theme for the 78th Freed-Hardeman University Lectureship (February 2-6, 2014), "The Patience of Hope: First and Last Things in Thessalonians".
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. We assume the costs associated with this week-long event including venues, speakers, registration processes, and program development. This commitment comes at an estimated annual cost of $85,315 to the university. However, it continues to be presented without an attendance fee. If you desire to support this effort, a $250 or more gift will allow you to become a lectureship sponsor.
Athletics is an important aspect of many students’ FHU experience. FHU is a part of the American Midwest 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.
Old Main Administration
The university is dedicated to the preservation and
restoration of our oldest and most prominent building, which we now call the Old
Main Administration Building. In the spring of 2012, it was added to the
National Register of Historic Places. Currently, architects and engineers are
putting together the plans for the restoration, expected to require $5.5
million. The goal is to restore the exterior and the common areas of the
building, such as the lobby, stairway, and hallways, to a condition as close as
possible to the way they looked in 1908, the year the building was completed.
But, since we plan to continue to use Old Main as an academic facility, we will
update the classrooms and offices with state-of-the-art technology and teaching
