What is your overall opinion of this school?

Furman University is a small liberal arts college in Greenville, SC. The school's small size provides for many opportunities. The small class sizes helps students build relationships with faculty and other students. Furman's classes are moderately rigorous, but provide enough challenge intellectually. Furman helps provide students with skills to help them grow as people rather than to just get a degree. The only draw away Furman has is its cost. At times, I find myself thinking that this school is not worth as much as I am paying. However, the university is very generous in giving scholarships and attempt to make everything as affordable as possible. I would recommend any student to visit and/or apply to Furman University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Gorgeous campus set in a natural setting. Professors are nice and host activities outside of the classroom. Student body is not very diverse at all. Not a large variety of sports offered. Nearby town of Greenville is very accessible, modern, and hip; it has a great vibe. Music department is fantastic. Overall a good liberal arts school, but nothing more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Furman University was my home away from home. The professors there helped cultivate passions and interests in me I’d never expected. I have made lifelong connections with those professors and staff on campus. Living on-campus all four years is a bonus, it builds such a great community. The size is great and the rigor is challenging but manageable. Plus the campus is beautiful. I wouldn’t have traded my experiences there for anything

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Furman is ok. If you're looking for diversity, then this is not your place. They tend to get students here for diversity but no inclusion takes place. Affordability is also hard since it is a private school and it is the mot expensive school in the south east (their brags, not mine). They tend to give you options if a student is going through something but they usually aren't the right options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Furman University, in my opinion, is the best school in South Carolina. It has the best food, academics, and makes you feel like you fit in. There is an opportunity for everyone to get involved with a group or activity. You never feel left out of anything!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally think it is a great school with excelling academics but as a black female, it can be a little tedious being on a predominantly white campus. But the diversity on this campus is mediocre and the things we do inside and outside Furman's campus could be better with the right funding towards causes that are important. There's little black Greek life on campus and that affects the amount of black students who apply to this school. It's an endless cycle which prevents black fraternities and sororities from establishing chapters!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being an out of state student, I had never heard of Furman University until a family friend living in the Greenville, South Carolina area told my family about it. Reading about the college is one thing but taking a tour of the campus is what really persuaded me to highly consider the college. Coming onto campus, I just really felt at home and the whole campus has absolutely beautiful scenery. So far I have really enjoyed my classes and the professors are really supportive, reply to emails quickly, and are very happy to have you visit them during office hours. Overall, I have enjoyed my short time here so far and I really look forward to spending the next three years here as well!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Furman University. My decision to attend Furman was easy. The students, staff and faculty welcomed me from the beginning by sharing information about the University and how I can become involved in the various activities on campus. The food is good but I do wish the weekend hours were longer. The Athletic Center (PACC) is open to all and I often use it.
