Tiger Gold on Friday Core 2 Campus Kick-Off event, a collaboration with the Downtown Hays Development Corporation, Hays CVB, TGOF and Eagle Communications to introduce Downtown Hays (Core) to the FHSU Students, Faculty and Staff packed the downtown area Thursday.

The FHSU marching band and University President Dr. Ed Hammond led the march from campus to Main Street.

There was a free hog roast for the first 500 FHSU students and faculty, the TGOF team gave away 500 free t-shirts, and there was a scavenger hunt with participating downtown businesses giving tickets for chances to win $500 cash.

Dr. Hammond mentioned that in the future, the event might be held later in the day so more of the community could participate.

    Great success! Except for the students that got lost and sick from the heat..

    What a waste. The philosophy of FHSU and Dr. EE is to take as much from the city / county as they can get away with; having little concern about what is given back. The deals all have the flavor of those EE had with the fellow now in federal lock up ( Dr. EE’s former condominium neighbor), that took FHSU for a ride on the housing project.
    Dr.EE has spoken in Topeka at legislative committees of going into private enterprises to compete….i.e. the convention center ( what happened to that too good to pass up deal?).

    What a show by Mr. & Mrs. FHSU themselves. Look at the photo of the two of them trying to act young and full of energy. Lucky they didn’t stumble and fall…

    The way I see it is that about 150 students humiliated the rest of the student body by acting like elementary school kids. Com’ on, college students going on a scavenger hunt, & led two blocks because they might get lost! I’m sending my granddaughter to some college outside this sissy town.
