4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lots of resources on campus to help students get in touch with career options. Also such a strong connection with Greenville which makes job and internship opportunities greater

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small class sizes, awesome professors, and a nice variety of courses considering the small student body size

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus and Furman's police are extremely accessible.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing can be difficult to deal with from time to time. Some housing options are fairly small and can be difficult to adjust to.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a pretty big deal, especially for girls, but if you are not Greek, it is no big deal. There are social opportunities for everyone.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are not a big part of the overall Furman experience, but everyone definitely attends at least a few football games and then other sporting events every year.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at Furman. The majority of my professors have been amazing and truly care about my success in and out of the classroom.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am a sophomore at Furman and I have been very happy with my time here so far. I have loved all of my professors (sometimes not the subject material however with GERs) and saw how much they care about every student and our success. I have gained friendships that challenge me to be a better person everyday. And the campus and its energy never seizes to amaze me. The only thing I would change about Furman is its tuition because I am paying for it in loans and will most likely paying my loans for the next 20-30 years.

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.
