The journey of recreating and renewing a sense of life's purpose never ends. This summer's Alumni Retreat, part of the Becherer Alumni Programs and sponsored by the Cothran Center for Vocational Reflection, offers the opportunity for you to gather with other Furman alumni who enjoy sharing their stories—what life has taught them—and hearing what others have found inspiring and encouraging along the way. It is also a time for personal reflection, space for discernment, opportunity for growth, and a chance to join in fellowship. This retreat is for all ages, career fields, stages of life, faith traditions, and backgrounds.

The next Alumni Retreat will be held during the summer of 2018. See below for more information.
