All Greek life on campus is coed and really inclusive. Any major events/competitions are organized or heavily participated by the social clubs.

Being a private college, Freed-Hardeman University does not recognize sororities or fraternities that are national chapters. At FHU, however, there are groups called social clubs that are comprised of both male and female students. Each club can host about 180 members a year, and at $25 per semester, club dues are much cheaper than that of a sorority or fraternity. These social clubs are very active on campus, and members stay busy with spiritual matters, intramural sports, club meetings, weekend retreats, a musical show called "Makin' Music," community service, and community outreach.

Every Thursday is club day, so every member showcases his or her club by wearing either the club jersey or a T-shirt from a club event. Every other Thursday, clubs will meet together and participate in many activities, ranging from food fights and slip 'n' slides to devotionals and nursing home visits. Membership is not exclusive, which is part of what makes FHU club members so close. Unlike a sorority or fraternity, every person who signs up to be in a club will be accepted.
