Southern Living Lists Greenville Among “South’s Best College Towns”

When Southern Living magazine compiled its list of the “South’s Best College Towns,” Furman’s hometown, Greenville, was among the top 21 choices.  According to the magazine, it “selected some of our favorite small towns, some true hidden gems of the South. We looked for schools beloved by their fan bases and their alumni, and schools exploring truly exciting academics and research that promise to reach the wider world…places in which the college is a driving force in the character of the town.”

Noting that Greenville is close to both the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the magazine called Greenville “a paradise for college students who can’t decide between the mountains and the beach. Bookworms looking for a break between study sessions will find an outdoor escape at Falls Park or the Paris Mountain State Park; with scenery so stunning, it’s no wonder the students of Furman love their college, and their town, so much.”
