At the core of the University is a dynamic engaged learning philosophy that’s grounded in the liberal arts and sciences. Students are taught by top-notch professors whose chief priorities are teaching and guiding undergraduate students—all within a close-knit campus community where ideas and perspectives are valued and encouraged.
The Furman Advantage promises all students an education that delivers value by preparing them for successful, meaningful lives. Guided by a community of mentors and supported by institutes and centers, students chart personalized four-year pathways that are made meaningful through guaranteed engaged learning experiences.
Our institutes and centers ensure there is a connection between the resources of Furman and the communities that we serve and strengthen. The Richard Riley Institute is a nonpartisan public policy think tank that promotes discussion and analysis of issues critical to South Carolina's future. The David E. Shi Center for Sustainability acts as a research hub and action center where students, educators and community leaders work together to explore sustainability challenges and generate scalable solutions. The Institute for the Advancement of Community Health serves as a convener of programs, educational initiatives, ideas and resources working collectively to bridge the population health gap of the Greenville community and beyond.
The student experience at Furman includes NCAA Division I Athletics, a vibrant student life culture encouraged by a 100 percent residential community, and a campus that is internationally recognized for its beauty.
Founded in 1826, the private university is located in the award-winning city of Greenville, South Carolina. Modern, sophisticated academic buildings are complemented by comprehensive athletics, recreational, and social facilities. Student housing ranges from traditional residence halls to apartments. The 750-acre campus features an Asian garden, a replica of Henry David Thoreau's cabin, a Florentine bell tower, a spring-fed lake, 13 miles of paved trails through the woodlands for hiking and biking, and an 18-hole golf course.
