Plan your visit.

We see it happen every year: after students visit our campus, they know they’re coming to Furman. Our campus has a close-knit, highly collaborative community and is constantly receiving accolades for its beauty. We’re also just minutes from Greenville, a thriving cosmopolitan city that’s a blend of Southern hospitality and urban dynamism.

There’s a community spirit here that you won’t find on other campuses. The reason? When you become a Paladin, you’ll join a passionate community of students who call our campus home. We’re a 100% residential campus, guaranteeing housing for every student for all four years. That creates a campus fabric that’s close-knit, collaborative, and highly involved.
