Furman to resume limited campus tours on trolleys.
Dear Campus Community,
The Office of Admissions is partnering with Prisma Health and the Fall Planning Steering Committee to safely resume limited campus tours on trolleys for prospective students, beginning Friday, October 9.
Furman is proceeding with extreme caution while understanding the essential role that campus visits play in helping students select their college. The health and safety of our campus community remains a priority, and the campus tours will follow all of the protocols and requirements outlined in the Paladin Promise and have even greater restrictions.
Students who have volunteered to lead the tours are receiving training this week from Admissions and members of the Public Health and Safety Advisory Group, including the Earle Student Health Center medical director. Participation in the tours for Admissions Ambassadors and other student tour guides is optional.
The visits for prospective students will follow these guidelines and procedures:
Campus tours play an essential role in helping prospective students and their families learn about what a Furman education offers, and influence their decision to attend the university.
For most high school seniors, their college search process has been disrupted since the middle of their junior year. Many have asked if they can visit, as most other colleges and universities in our region are offering tours, to help them make this life-changing decision.
Furman’s first early decision application deadline is November 15. The early action deadline is December 1. Visit the Admissions site for more information.
As a reminder, the parents and families of Furman students who are currently living on campus are welcome to visit, as outlined in our Campus Visitors policy. Other guests invited by faculty and staff, as well as others conducting business on campus, are allowed to visit under these specific circumstances, as long as they follow campus health and safety protocols, including wearing face coverings and physical distancing.
If you have any questions or concerns, please share them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
