Furman University is the oldest private institution in South Carolina. The school is named for a clergyman and was formerly associated with the South Carolina Baptist Convention. The curriculum is a liberal arts focus and admissions are “more selective.” Business administration and management, political science and government, and communication are the top majors among undergraduates.
Furman is engaged in the student's interests, not just academics. Furman is prestigious and challenging, but the percentage of graduates either attending a graduate school or career is 100% within the year. Furman understands students will be stressed when it comes to finals, that is why it sets up activities like massages and therapeutic pets outside test centers.

An amazing institution who offers several majors while also representing its role as a liberal arts school. There is a great balance of challenging academics while also have a heavy student participation in community involvement around the campus. It is truly a place where all students can feel safe and accepted.
