Student Organizations

Furman has more than 170 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. We probably have what you’re looking for, but if not, find a few students who share your interest and start your own club!

Heller Service Corps

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

Fraternity & Sorority Life

We practice a deferred recruitment process, 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.
