Athletics: Equipment never works and equipment is mostly taken.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Its okay easy to get in, hard to get out. A school with mostly commuters. Small not a huge choice of professors. Will have the same professor for more than one class. There's not much to do within the overall area.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Francis Marion has several measures in effect to help students feel secure, such as the emergency call lights.

Athletics: Unfortunately, FMU does not have a football team, so I feel that takes away from the interest of athletics.

Overall Experience: Francis Marion University is a smaller school compared to the surrounding colleges. Because it is smaller, there is more one on one time with the teachers and students to create a better learning atmosphere. I see FMU faculty outside of campus, and they do not hesistate to ask how I am doing or how classes are going.

Campus Housing: Convenience to classes is my best reason for housing. Security is good with the campus police presence. Walking even late at night is safe. Different dorms offer different socializing opportunities and making friends or socializing with other dorms or areas is easy.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It is a part of the campus life but since I am not really into sports, I'm not too involved. I do attend home games. We also have a beautiful, new state of the art athletic field

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my first year at school. Not only on campus but also the community involvement and outreach. I have been able to enjoy a varied set of experience from volunteering at the local animal shelter as part of a course to attending different performing arts shows. Also being given the opportunity to travel - Washington DC, New York, Myrtle Beach,North Carolina, etc. funded by the university was awesome. It is said that it is easy to get into Francis Marion but to stay in is hard. Professors will make you work. Looking forward to the next school year.

Overall Experience: The professors ( some) really try to make sure you are being equipped with the best education there is here at FMU and they make sure you are the best student you can be

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school always try to have career fairs and its great and really eye opening because you are able to get a feel about what you want to do with your major so thats really enjoyable. And the graduation rates are always high as well so FMU definitely takes pride in their students and alumni and even in the community

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus Police really makes sure that everyone is safe. They'll let us know if they've seen any suspicious activity and they do a great job of handling issues

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I never have had a problem living in campus since i have been there. I like where i stay the distance/ time it takes me ti get to class

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The Greek life is ok, they try to have step shows whenever they can

4 College Senior

Athletics: FMU has a great support for the sports and crowds are almost at every game

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: This is a university that i had always dreamed of going to and now it is getting close to my graduation from Francis Marion University. There were many journeys along the way, some good some bad but in the end it was with how i did things, so now, i look back on those things and i have definitely changed those things and school is great!! Im seeing improvements all the time and Francis Marion is definitely a school i am proud to say i came from!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of the courses at my school are the best! The material we go over in class, along with the textbooks are very helpful. We have a variety of classes at my school and I enjoy taking as many as I can to help with my future career. The class sizes are nice and small, which allows professors to be one on one with the students and very helpful. They are always willing to answer questions and often encourage it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: We have career fairs, where I understand many people get jobs from. I have not been to any yet, but have only good things about it. I have also heard that our career center is very helpful.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on my campus, the only reason I rated this topic as it's bad, is because of the lack of effort our campus police put forth. I have only been in contact with one police officer who seemed to actually care about his job and the well being of the students on campus. Most of the police do not try and help the students at school. I have had a few different situations where I had to go to campus police about something that was going on and they were not helpful at all and never fixed nor actually tried to solve anything. Also one of the police ladies spoke very rudely to me with an attitude when I was going to her for help, and nothing ever got done. I started out as the victim and she basically told me she could not do anything to help me and tried to turn the blame around on me. Every student I have talked with about campus police have never had anything god to say about them. I am not satisfied at all with campus police! Very disappointed.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally don't know much about our Greek Life on campus, though I have been to a few Greek events. I was thinking about joining a sorority this coming year because one of my psychology friends is apart of one.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We recently got a new athletic complex and it is really great! I have attended baseball games, soccer games, and basketball games. Our women's basketball team made it to nationals this past year and did very well. During homecoming, the fan support is top notch! We start the homecoming day off with every club and sport at school decorating golf carts and having everyone in the clubs and sports march around campus where they end at the University Center. All throughout the day there are tons of festivities as our Men's and Women's basketball teams play the homecoming game, which we won this past year. The only thing I would like different about our athletics is a football team, we have a small school so we don't have on , bu tI wish we did.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose my school again if i were to start all over. I love how my school isn't that big, but it's not that small either. I love how easy it is to make friends in you area of study, mine being psychology. Just about every professor I have had, has been very passionate about their class and students. Most of them genuinely do care about your success. I love the events on campus and how beautiful our campus is. It is always such a relaxing feeling to walk outside and stroll around campus. I love Francis Marion University, if you try hard and put forth your best effort, you will succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love most of the professors. I'm not too happy about the workload, because it's so stressful, but the professors will work with you if you need help.
