Family

Family

Visit campus to understand why FHU is the place you will want to call home. When you enroll, you become part of the FHU family for life. The memories you will make and the friendships you will develop will last a lifetime. You will build these relationships during late nights in your dorm, times in the homes of faculty and staff, and as you worship, serve and study locally and internationally.

Christianity

Christianity

Your spiritual life will permeate every aspect of your college experience. In addition to deepening your faith through a Bible class each semester, you will find prayer, scripture and service incorporated into classes and activities. In chapel, you will gather with other students, faculty, and staff to worship, share prayer requests, be strengthened and create memories.

At night, you can participate in devotionals, singings or Bible studies. The student lectureships and the annual FHU Lectureship will give you a unique opportunity to hear various speakers and to gather with other Christians from around the world. You will also have opportunities to participate in local and global missions.
