Favorite Furman tradition: My favorite traditions are the secret ones you find out about after you become a student at Furman. The first night at Orientation, getting on the Improv Troupe, and Senior Order are some of my favorite secret traditions.

Best thing about Furman: The people. Furman attracts some of the most passionate, driven, and amazing people. Being surrounded by them constantly is a true gift.

Most frequently asked questions and answer: Is it weird to go to Furman if you grew up in Greenville? No! Your childhood Greenville is very different from your Furman Greenville. You will find there are new places, people, and experiences that transform Greenville and make it feel like it's your college town.

Best piece of advice for prospective students: Go with your gut. Making the college decision can be a stressful and difficult time. Trust your gut and find the place that you want to call Home for the next four years.
