Greek Life: I didn't ever think I would join Greek life but I wound up doing so somehow and I think it'll be a good thing for me. It'll help my social skills for sure but I guess you could say I'm still a little new to the whole ordeal.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our school spirit could probably be better but honestly people don't come here for the athletics, they come for the academics. I think it is interesting to note how fit our general population is though.

Overall Experience: I'm really glad that I decided to come here simply because of the people. There are great opportunities too and academically it's rigorous and interesting, but lots of other schools have that too. What convinced me was the vibe and the community feel.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
