A History of Education

FN University is the culmination of over a century of emphasizing education. Our founder, Major John B. Hawley, began this tradition by offering financial support to students and employees pursuing higher education. He believed that continuing education was essential to a professional engineer, and today, this belief is an integral part of Freese and Nichols’ culture.
