Family Information Furman University

Ready to send your new student off to college? We're here to help! Whether you're seeking hotel arrangements for move-in day or thinking about joining your student for Summer Orientation, we can point you in the right direction. We can also guide you through the forms, financial information and other resources that you’ll want to review before move-in day. It's our way of welcoming you to our family.

Attend summer orientation

To help you become acclimated to our campus, we have designed a parent and family orientation program during Summer Orientation. We hold five Summer Orientation sessions, 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 patty.white@furman.edu​
