On Saturday Aug. 17, Freed-Hardeman University welcomed its incoming freshmen and transfers.
The students began at Brewer Sports Center where they would do all the tasks necessary to get settled at FHU such as signing the student registry, housing, car tags and etc. Community partners were also at Brewer Sports center on the second floor greeting the new students, telling them about their organization and giving them goodies.
Then, the students moved into their dorms with ease as upperclassmen and faculty helped the incoming students unload their cars with the new students’ families not having to worry about carrying a single thing.
At 11:30 a.m. the students and families were served lunch at Heritage Commons.
FHU alumni Mark Eddy is excited for his son Jacksen to start college at FHU.
“I’m very excited for him,” he said. “With him going here, it brings back memories.”
FHU Vice President of Student Services Wayne Scott shared why he loves this event every year.
“It’s always great to see the students come in excited to start college,” he said. “It’s almost like a homecoming for us, because most of their parents went to school here.”
