Save the date!

September will be here before you know it, so be sure to "save the date" today for FHSU Homecoming 2018 -- September 23-29! While student and on-campus activities will be scheduled throughout the week, the annual alumni festivities begin Thursday, Sept. 27 with the ever-popular Tiger Golf Tournament at the Smoky Hill Country Club and Tiger Bonfire and Pep Rally that evening on the east lawn of the Robbins Center.

The weekend will be jam-packed with reunion activities, including special events in celebration of the 50- and 60-year reunion classes, 1968 and 1958, respectively; Men's and Women's All-year Basketball teams and Department of Art and Design graduates. Plus, a special reception honoring the 90th anniversary of Forsyth Library naming dedication ceremony will also be scheduled during the weekend celebration.

Not involved in a reunion group? Not to fear...there's plenty for you to do throughout the weekend! Enjoy delicious German foods in Frontier Park during Oktoberfest, celebrate the next class of Alumni Awards recipients, find your pace during the 5K Tiger Run/Walk, view the Homecoming Parade in beautiful downtown Hays, then cheer on our Tiger football team to victory against Central Oklahoma!

Specialty Reunions

Special reunion activities are hosted each year to honor classes, academic areas and organizations. The Alumni Association is dedicated to developing, fostering and advancing the relationships of the Tiger community. Historically, the Association has provided planning support and facilitation for FHSU reunions during the Homecoming weekend. In an effort to further that support, the Association has created an online request form for those groups interested in scheduling a reunion. Reunions may be scheduled all-year long, providing alternative opportunities for gathering at times other than Homecoming. Interested groups should complete the request form for consideration of implementation by the Association.
