Student Organizations

Furman has more than 150 student organizations-and counting. Join a rock band. Report, write and communicate through one of our student media organizations. Debate your peers in mock trials. Whatever draws your interest, you’ll find a group of students you can connect with. If not, find a few students who share your interest and start your own club, like our Super Smash Bros. video game club, which gained more than 50 members in its first year.

Heller Service Corps

Essential to the Furman experience—both in and out of the classroom—is preparation for a life of consequence and meaning. Heller Service Corps, our largest student organization, encourages an in-depth commitment to the community.

Fraternity & Sorority Life

We practice a deferred recruitment, which takes place in January, to give you a chance to get settled, make new friends and adjust academically before making a lifelong commitment to an organization.

Leadership Development

The Shucker Center for Leadership Development is a two-year program that guides emerging leaders through self-exploration, initiative, commitment, collaboration and experiential learning. It inspires students to explore their passions and become catalysts for change.
