Summer Orientation Furman University

Summer Orientation focuses on the nuts and bolts of class selection. You'll attend one of our five two-day sessions dedicated to ironing out class selection and other academic prep details. These sessions prepare you for the classes you'll be taking during your first semester. You'll work in small groups and one-on-one with academic advisors to discuss fall course options. Summer Orientation dates for 2017 are:

  • June 16-17
  • June 19-20
  • June 22-23
  • June 24-25
  • June 27-28

Keep in mind that Summer Orientation is also home to Parent & Family Orientation. As you prepare for the academic programs on our campus, your parents and family will be given an overview of what to expect during your four years at Furman. The cost is $150 per student, which covers meals and staying on campus for the student plus meals for one parent or family member. Additional parents/family members attending will be $30 each. Students will stay in one of our residence halls during Summer Orientation, while parents and family members will need to reserve a hotel room in the area.
