Guys & Girls: Guys and hot, girls are beautiful. Another plus is that more often than not, each beautiful student comes with an enormous trust fund from Mama and Daddy.

Transportation: The Furman SafeRide shuttle is incredibly convenient. To get it to pick you up, the only thing you have to do is call the SafeRide number and they'll pick you up anywhere on campus and bring you wherever on campus you would like to go. Mr. Dan, the driver, is quite possibly one of the most interesting humans on this earth.

Campus Strictness: FUPO's presence on campus is only to keep members of the Furman community safe. FUPO officers are incredibly kind and will do everything possible to help students if they have any sort of problem.

Local Atmosphere: Greenville is the perfect college city. It's just big enough to offer a variety of amenities, from the GSP airport to excellent restaurants downtown, but not big enough to swallow the college in urban sprawl.

Diversity: Although not the most racially diverse campus, it is easy to find people who fall into other minority groups at Furman. There is a fairly strong Jewish community and there is am abundance of cultural diversity since many students come from different areas of America and the world.

Athletics: Furman football games always draw a big crowd of tailgaters but not everyone goes and actually watches the game. Students are very supportive of teams that would receive less attention at other schools, such as the soccer team.

Furman students are generally crazy about their school. Although it's not for everyone, the ones who decide to attend usually find it a great match. The academic programs at Furman are a huge draw. Students appreciate the quality of education they are getting and the personal attention they get from their professors. And although the workload can be stressful at times, Furman's idyllic campus makes it difficult to sustain any level of stress for too long.

It's true the Furman bubble may seem out of touch with the real world at times. Sometimes, it seems like you are surrounded by homecoming queens, class presidents, and valedictorians. But despite a few complaints, no one seems to want to leave. Just ask anyone on campus. Furman students love to talk about why they love their school.
