    Furman is definitely not cheal. However, there are plenty of scholarship and financial aid options and I believe my student loans will be worth the quality education I've received thus far.

    If you want to get the most for your money, you will - but only if you work hard for it. There are students who come in their freshman year, barely manage 3 classes with a C average, and participate in maybe one club the whole time. If you're coming to Furman, be ready to work your brain. Getting A's isn't hard, but your professors know that, so they make it a challenge. This school shows its best value for the price in the classes you choose and how they are taught, and the professors who are extremely knowledgeable about the material. Pick your courses wisely, be prepared to pull a few all-nighters throughout the year, and celebrate when you ace your final test. Not to mention that great internship you landed over the summer!

    Furman is expensive but offers several scholarship opportunities to make up for the price and pay for the amazing education each of the University's students will be receiving.
