Furman University is a 4-year, 100% residential institution in Greenville, South Carolina, and is the oldest private institution in the state. The curriculum has a liberal arts focus throughout its 60 degrees of studies and is based around The Furman Advantage, a four-tiered pathway that includes self-discovery, interconnected student experiences, team-based advising, and engaged learning. The Furman campus is home to a number of "Centers of Impact," including the David E. Shi Center for Sustainability, the Institute for the Advancement of Community Health, and the Collaborative for Community-Engaged Learning.
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.
