Furman's facilities offer a wide variety of services to students. The Physical Activities Center, or PAC, has a large gym with a climbing wall, indoor pool, and workout facility. While the workout facilities need renovation, most of the equipment is new. The student center perpetuates Furman's reputation for having the atmosphere of a Southern country club. Picturesquely located at the banks of Furman's lake, the student center houses the bookstore, post-office, copy-center, food-court, movie theater, and coffee shop. The typical scene includes students sipping their lattes and chai teas on the patio as the occasional swan scuttles across the grass. Just up the hill, glistening fraternity members recreate Top Gun's volleyball scene on sunny afternoons as sunbathers recline on the lawn, smudging their textbooks with tanning oil.
Furman's campus is known for its beauty. The lake, bell tower, rose garden, fountains, and traditional architecture create a picturesque and idyllic setting. The facilities offered are remarkable for a university this size.
