Summer Orientation focuses on your academic path at Furman and the nuts and bolts of class selection. Attend one of five sessions dedicated to learning more about navigating the academic transition from high school, attending a liberal arts institution, and preparing for fall course selection. The day will culminate with a one-on-one meeting with a summer academic advisor to discuss fall course options available to you.
