Furman Engaged 2021 Reflection Contest
There are many ways to participate in Furman Engaged – as a presenter and an attendee. The program features students sharing myriad types of engaged learning experiences from all disciplines and majors represented at Furman.
For those who attend Furman Engaged, we encourage you to reflect upon what you hear and see throughout the day. For those who do presentations, we encourage you to think not only about the engaged learning experience you share, but also how the act of sharing that experience with the Furman Community affected your learning.
Students can submit reflections for one of or both of the prompts. $100 prizes will be awarded for the most compelling reflection in each category. The deadline to submit your reflection is April 23. Prizes will be awarded by May 3rd.

It inspires me to know that here at Furman I will be presented with so many wonderful opportunities that will enhance my academic experience and prepare me beyond measure for life after Furman.
Furman Engaged gives students the opportunity to explore options in fields that relate to their studies and interests, as well as explore those that are on the opposite side of the spectrum.
Furman Engaged has truly opened my eyes to the opportunities available at this institution, and I am sufficiently motivated and energized to take part in this type of integrative work that the Furman Advantage offers.
