“Excellent Liberal Arts School”
September 2015FORMER STUDENT

Excellent study abroad program. Great teachers in small class rooms. Very friendly environment.


Everyone knows everyone else (which can create a weird dating culture).


Greek Life is good, but you don't have to be in one to do Student Government or be a leader on campus.

Would You Recommend



The class sizes are small. The classes are rigorous and thought provoking. Most classes are demanding, but with dedication and hard work you can do well. In my experience, all the professors have been very open to meet with students and discuss problems or topics that are difficult to understand. The professors care about their students greatly and want them to do well here at Furman. Depending on the classes you take will change the amount of work you receive (i.e. a reading-based class will take a bit more time than others). Every student is required to take core classes (such as mathematics and reasoning, ultimate questions, etc.) and two first year seminars (a writing and nonwriting one).

Quality of Life

The quality of life at school is overall pretty good. The residence halls are nice for college housing (I have only lived in Townes hall so I can't speak for everywhere). The campus is BEAUTIFUL and the facilities provided to the students are great.


The application process is pretty standard. Common Application and a Personal Statement are required.
