Family & Consumer Sciences Student Association
The Harding University Family and Consumer Sciences Student Association brings together students in each of the FCS specialty areas to develop leadership, support, relationships and knowledge.

In addition, students will gain leadership experience as officers in the Harding FCS Association and in the Arkansas Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. In the fall the students attend a leadership conference that is planned by the current student president of the ArFCS Association. In the spring the students are encouraged to attend the two day conference of the ArFCS Association. Students have the opportunity to network and associate with other FCS majors and professionals in the state of Arkansas.
