I am definately learning more than I thought I'd be learning in such short semesters at Furman. At times it may seem a bit overwhelming but professors are always willing to explain and help their students and Furman provides tutoring if needed during the week.

    Furman has a beautiful campus and a very tight knit community. Academics are hard but you know that you will get a good education. Social life is very laid back which means so no crazy parties.

    Furman promotes a sense of community since all students are required to live on campus all four years. I like being able to visit my friends without getting lost or having to trek across campus. You definitely won't be lost in a crowd and will find a sense of home here.

    Furman is the perfect place to get a true liberal education. Furman classes will expand your mind in a way that I believe could not happen at any other university. The dedication of the professors to their students is outstanding.

    A great Liberal Arts school with excellent education: one-on-one time with professors, and they work hard to get you internships/jobs after you graduate. Social life is strongly geared towards Greek life or sports, but there are many other clubs to get involved in aside from that. Definitely very small and a lot different than larger schools: mostly everyone knows each other and the school doesn't have that huge state school spirit if that's what you're looking for.

    Furman is a challenging environment that will keep you up for frequent late nights in the library. Its charming rose garden, tranquil lake, and beautiful grounds create a lovely place to study. Most importantly, Furman's liberal arts curriculum will prepare students to be engaged in all aspects of the fast-changing world.

    Furman is the ideal place for transitioning between a dependent life with your parents and an independent life on your own. The academics are challenging, the campus is beautiful and the community is inviting. It truly is a home away from home.

    Furman is exciting, but rigorous academically, but you can be successful if you are organized and willing to get help. Furman will give you a network and lifelong friends. It will also give you amazing study skills and prepare you for the future.
