Most frequently asked question and answer: How was the adjustment to living in the South?  It was an easy and enjoyable transition!  Greenvillians are so welcoming, and Furman provides a unique opportunity to experience southern hospitality while you meet people from all over the country and world.

Best piece of advice for prospective students: Once you’ve narrowed your college search, visit your top campuses more than once.  Chances are, you missed something the first go around, and a second visit can really help you “seal the deal”!

Random/fun fact about you: In 7th grade, I hung out with LeBron James and beat him in a game of knock-out.
