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 a place for the most intellectually curious to pursue their academic goals. it is a very competitive environment, as everyone is at the highest level of academic excellence. though the workload is stressful at times, you really feel like you are broadening your horizons.
