Congratulations on your student's admission to Furman! Our parents and families are an important part of our community, and we're excited to welcome you to our family.
From making hotel arrangements for move-in day to registering for Summer Orientation, we encourage you to browse this page to find all of the information that you'll want to review before your student's first day of class.
Keep informed about campus events, news and more. Complete our Family Information Form.
Attend Summer Orientation
To help you become acclimated to our campus, we have designed a parent and family orientation program during Summer Orientation. You'll attend one of five Summer Orientation sessions in June, which focus primarily on the academic portion of your student’s experience, but also give you as a parent or family member the opportunity to gather a bevy of critical information. Learn how to register with your student for this event.
SUMMER SEND OFFS
Making friends before you start classes is even easier when you attend a Summer Send Off in the city nearest you. You can join alumni, parents, and fellow incoming students for send-offs in Atlanta, Birmingham, Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, Greenville, Nashville, Western NC, and Raleigh. For event dates and locations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recognize the significant investment your family makes to attain a Furman education. We also know that the process of applying for and assessing financial aid can be a daunting task. That’s why we’re going out of our way to ensure you and your student are prepared financially. Get the financial details you need.
Save the date: We’re welcoming Furman’s extended family back to campus September 26-28 for Family Weekend.
