For the past four years, FHU has received the prestigious Great School, Great Price distinction and has been ranked in the Best Southeast Universities by U.S. News & World Report. But what does that mean?
It means we care. We care enough to keep our class sizes small, allowing you to have more time with qualified instructors who know you by name and care about your success. While you're here, we know that financial aid is important, and we work hard to help each and every student. And most importantly we provide the opportunities that prepare you to find that great first job or graduate program to help you find even more success after you leave FHU. And the most important part of our university is the people that make it great. People just like you.
Your time at FHU can lead you to some big places. Graduates from FHU are accepted into graduate and professional programs that are consistently at the top of their respective fields.

Freed-Hardeman is about people. Old and new, the school and the family it contains are much the same. The buildings age, the photos fade, but the people and the love they show for each other is constant. Here's a few key points in the history of FHU, and how the people of that time helped mold Freed-Hardeman into the place we love today.
A.G. Freed becomes president of West Tennessee Christian College, renamed Georgie Robertson Christian College in 1897.
The Administration Building, now called Old Main, begins construction. It is designed by famous local architect Hubert McGee.
Georgie Robertson Christian College is renamed for current president and vice president Freed and Hardeman, respectively.
A women's Bible class in 1939 is taught by W. Claude Hall, who achieved recognition by aligning our curriculum with national standards.
Makin' Music's first performance, "Once a Year Day," involves 14 groups, 200 students, and the Grand Prize goes to the senior class.
Leading the way in technological advancement, FHU begins the iKnow Initiative, a relationship with Apple incorporating technology and learning.
Our on-campus education is world-class. But the limits of our campus extend far past Henderson.
Education at Freed-Hardeman not only teaches you to excel outside of the classroom, but can literally take you far beyond. Headquartered in the centrally located town of Verviers, Belgium the study abroad program at FHU promises a semester you will never forget. Now with fall and spring programs available, both allow for weeks of group and free travel. Students are able to earn at least 12 credit hours that include courses in literature, history and Bible.
And you can learn here, too. A first-hand look at global culture helps you build a complete education.
Not only will you learn how to make a living, but you will also learn to live spiritually. From mission trips to service clubs, leading in chapel and devotionals, to simply being a part of the local Christian community, FHU makes your spiritual
development number one on it's priority list. One component of this that is at the core of who we are at FHU is service to others. Every student has the chance to serve in an organized way, where results can easily be seen. Whether it's through a science program for 7th and 8th graders or on mission trips that span the globe, our students work to make the world a better place. Because of their service and what they provide, they not only enhance where they live, work and play, they find contentment and satisfaction in a life that can only be found at FHU.
At FHU, you not only get an education, but you have access to so much more. Imagine becoming the person you were meant to be while being surrounded by lifelong friends, supportive teachers and knowing that at Freed-Hardeman, you truly are where you belong. This is your home.
While Freed-Hardeman is not the largest school you could attend, the opportunities you'll have here are huge. This is a place where you will have the chance to lead. From professional clubs, social clubs, school trips or service organizations, the opportunities in front of you are endless. And we want you to know that we care about who you are. You're not a number. You're a valuable part of the family and we want you to find lifelong success.
The life as a student at Freed can't be summarized in a paragraph. The friendships, experiences and education you become a part of while here are unlike anything else you can imagine. While at FHU you become part of a family that you will continue even after you leave Freed. Come be a part of the FHU family and see what you're missing out on!
