What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
understand that, no matter what your high school was like, furman will be a challenge. studying every single day is truly necessary to thrive in this environment. the classes are mostly discussion based, so reading [the materials before class] will be your life.
D. Cody from South Carolina
The academics in Furman are challenging. However, if you are willing to put in the work and attend your classes, it is manageable. Furman professors know that their students are intelligent people, so they want to further their growth as scholars.
Sophie from Marietta, GA
The work is hard, but if you get to know your professors and put in the time outside of class, getting A's is possible. The struggle is real, but the information you leave each class with will surprise you and will never leave your memory.
Furman is no joke when it comes to academics. I have yet to take an easy class here but most of the professors are very helpful and you definitely learn a lot from their classes.
