Mark your calendars—the next Maroon and Gold Day is fast approaching.
Maroon and Gold day essentially puts a prospective student in the shoes of a current student. From in-depth campus tours to visiting college level classes, parents and prospective students get a look into a day in the life of a Freed-Hardeman University student. The day is hosted by Freed-Hardeman’s Campus Delegate Team (CDT) and Admissions office. All juniors and seniors in high school who are considering FHU as their college home are encouraged to register. The expected 100 students and parents will definitely not be disappointed by their trip. This event goes far beyond the typical campus visit—it is truly a day in the life of a Freed-Hardeman student.
After checking in at Loyd Auditorium, all the students will meet at 10:30 a.m. for daily chapel. The prospective students and their parents will then have the opportunity to eat lunch with faculty from all of the educational departments at Freed. This time will allow the students to discuss their future majors with the people who know about them best: their future teachers. Next, Freed’s popular singing group, The Ambassadors, will perform for all of the attendants. Following the concert, students and parents will be taken to separate sessions. The student session will give the potential “Freedies” a better sampling of the college life; parents will meet with financial aid. At the end of the day, optional dorm tours are offered.
You can register online at http://www.fhu.edu/MaroonAndGold until the events begin on February 15th. If you have any questions you may contact the Admissions Office at 731-989-6651.
