Spirituality and Religion

Furman has many religious organizations that offer opportunities for friendship, a place to worship and spiritual guidance. But even if you don’t become a member of one of these organizations, you’ll be encouraged to examine your own beliefs.

That’s because your time at Furman is all about discovery and learning how you fit into the big picture. You’ll address questions such as: Who am I? What do I believe? What do I care about? What are my passions? What are my dreams and aspirations? What is my place in the world?

From there, we’ll support and guide you through your own spiritual reflection and free inquiry. You’ll arrive at your own sense of identity with a better understanding of your personal goals, your spirituality, and your faith.
