Engaged Living: The First-Year Experience

It's your first day at Furman and you already met your professors and feel confident about your classes. You also already have a close-knit group of friends, who also happen to be your hallmates and classmates. And you have a good idea of how you're going to be involved on campus this year. You've got this!

Engaged Living: The First-Year Experience provides you with an easy transition into your first year of college life by giving you immediate academic support and a sense of camaraderie. You will:
  • live with other Engaged Living students in the same residence hall;
  • work closely with faculty and students who share your same interests in one of five academic programs;
  • lead other Furman students in a variety of campus life activities;
  • make friends and colleagues who will support you through your four years at Furman.
 It's time to get your first year started!
