Bells have a variety of traditions surrounding them. In the Academic Advising and Career Exploration Center, they are a symbol of a voice being heard.
Students who receive a cowbell from the AACE Center have completed the career exploration process in the office and have found their voice in declaring a major that fits their interests, abilities, values and strengths.
This milestone is celebrated with the gift of the cowbell to serve as a reminder to the student that with exploration, reflection and commitment to themselves they can find their place in the world.
The yellow color of the cowbell not only shows FHSU school spirit, but also represents the drive of the student to act and turn their goals and dreams into a reality.
