Golden Year Reunion



Our desire every June is to say, Welcome Home. Welcome back to the hallowed grounds of Freed-Hardeman College. This was home for some of the best years of your life — a home where lifelong friendships were formed, lifetime memories were made and your faith was challenged and developed.

Because of the current pandemic and federal and state social distancing guidelines, we cannot welcome you home this summer, and the impact of that decision saddens us in a palpable way.

As with any decision we’ve recently had to make, this was not an easy one. Of all the events we host throughout the year, this reunion is easily the most meaningful annual event — the camaraderie, laughter, stories and fellowship shared each June remind me of the unique bond uniting those who called FHC/FHU home... a bond understood only by those who lived it.

At the heart of this decision is the health and wellbeing of you, our alumni, and the integrity of the event. After all, it wouldn’t truly feel like Golden Year Reunion if you could not embrace those who meant the most from your days on campus.

I hope you will make an extra special effort to return to campus June 16-182021, when we will specially recognize the anniversary classes of 197119701966196519611960195619551946 and 1945.

In closing, know that we miss you. We miss your presence on our campus and the opportunities to reconnect you to the people and places that are deeply meaningful to you.

Until we can be together again, I thank God for every remembrance of you (Philippians 1:3).

My best-

Chris J. Ramey (’96)
Director of Alumni Engagement
