Networking with Alumni

Furman Connect is a series of online networking events recently launched by the Alumni and Parent Engagement Office, in partnership with other campus offices. Furman Connect events facilitate text-based alumni-to-alumni networking and alumni-to-student mentoring. Participants can join events from anywhere using a computer, smartphone, or tablet, and no audio or video is required. Events focus on networking by job function, industry, region, major, as well as around conversation topics.
