Welcome to Fort Hays State University!
You've spent countless hours helping your daughters or sons to prepare for college and we are so pleased you and your son or daughter have joined the Tiger family. We understand the vital role parents (Tiger "Maws" and "Paws") play in the college experience and we want to partner with you to ensure your student's success at FHSU. We designed this web site to help you better connect to the University as well as to other parents. The pages include calendars of University dates and events (Mark Your Calendar), announcements and upcoming deadlines (Parent Mailbox), parent newsletters and ways to send special greetings to your Tiger (Stay in Touch), topics of special interest to parents, our Family Guidebook (Be Informed), as well as directions to campus and area accommodations and restaurants (Plan Your Visit).
