High school juniors and seniors are invited to visit Freed-Hardeman University for Maroon and Gold Day Feb. 21. While admissions encourages all prospective students to schedule a campus tour, this event promises to be more than a standard campus visit.
“Maroon and Gold Day is about meeting other people who plan to attend FHU. Attending Maroon and Gold Day is one of the best ways to appreciate the warm feelings that exist between our students,” observed Josh Walden, an FHU admissions counselor.
Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. in Loyd Auditorium followed by chapel at 10:30 a.m. After a welcome from President Joe Wiley, parent and student guests will be divided into tour groups based on their intended major. An admissions counselor and two student members of Campus Delegate Team will lead each tour.
Prospective students and their parents are invited to have lunch with faculty members from various academic disciplines. Freed-Hardeman’s dean of student life, Tony Allen, will lead a student session about social clubs and other student organizations, and the day will conclude with refreshments in the Crews-Colbert Activity Center. While their children are attending classes and the student session, parents can take part in a financial aid session and meet with Vice President Wayne Scott. In addition to the planned activities, registered attendants may arrange to have a campus tour at the end of the day.
As of Tuesday, Feb. 15, 177 persons had registered for Maroon and Gold Day. The admissions team hopes to reach a record 250 attendees. High school students may contact the Office of Admissions at 731-989-6651 for more information or register at http://fhu.edu/MaroonAndGold.
