Alumination Day

Oct 19, 2018

Freed-Hardeman University’s first Alumination Day in September offered alumni the opportunity to return to campus to inspire current students. FHU President David Shannon suggested the event early in his tenure.

The day was filled with a campus tour, luncheon and visits from alumni in many classes across various disciplines. During the luncheon, Shannon applauded alumni for returning to FHU to invest in students. “Today, you are Freed-Hardeman and are part of what makes us who we are. It is important for us to stay connected and together,” he said. “Thank you to our excellent faculty for inviting alumni back to the classrooms to illuminate the minds and imaginations of current students.”

Athletics Rebrand

Oct 19, 2018

Freed-Hardeman unveiled a new athletic identity at the beginning of the fall 2017 semester. The launch followed a year of research, feedback and work by a committee comprised of student athletes, staff and a creative team.

The process included hundreds of initial sketches, resulting in final marks to meet the needs of each sport. The campus is transitioning to the new logo on athletic uniforms, signs and across media platforms. “People already have seen the new look on the website and social media,” Mike McCutchen, FHU athletic director, said.

In discussing the launch, FHU President David Shannon added, “Athletics is important to life at Freed-Hardeman, as it ignites unity, brings excitement to campus and shapes the lives of student athletes. I am confident that this refreshed identity will represent the excellence that we see on the court and field and in the classroom from our student athletes and coaches.”
