August is a new beginning……the start of classes, meeting new people, and finding a new home. At FHSU, we celebrate that new beginning as a festival of new freedoms, opportunities, and fun.
For New StudentsWe can't possibly cover all the things you need to know to be successful at FHSU during Tiger Stripes: Pre-Enrollment Days and Tiger Impact Fall Orientation Weekend. That is why we have Your First 40 Days at Fort Hays (First 40 Days). First 40 Days offers you a variety of programs & events to help you with this transition.
The ChallengeThroughout your first 40 days (6 weeks), you will be encouraged to attend at least 6 events: 2 Social Events and then 1 of each of the remaining tracks. Each track represents a category. Reflections will be required on at least 1 event through Tiger[Link]. Successful completion of the First 40 Days will be a requirement of the UNIV 101 Freshman Seminar course.
Check out the First 40 Days schedule of events.
For Returning StudentsReturning to school has never been more fun. A variety of events full of food, entertainment, and more have been packed together to create Welcome Back Weeks 2014. Just a few of the events include:
