Furman to Launch 19 FAN Clubs in 2019
Furman University is connecting alumni in regions throughout the country with the launch of The Furman Advantage Network (FAN) Clubs. The clubs were initiated to engage alumni interested in building and cultivating the Furman community in their area and to grow tradition, affiliation and pride in the support of the university. The groups will act as a hub for alumni to network, socialize and support each other.
Since January, 12 cities have held inaugural events: Atlanta, Boston, Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, Dallas, Houston, Nashville, Richmond, Triangle (Durham/Raleigh/Chapel Hill, NC), Upstate SC (Greenville/Spartanburg, Anderson) and Washington, DC. As the year continues, FAN Clubs will launch in Birmingham, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando and Tampa. The Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement will recruit volunteer leaders and unveil 20 additional FAN Clubs in 2020.
