What is the difference between conservative and liberal humor? What are some reasons to release a defendant on bond? How does personality type affect social media use and self esteem?

The answers to each can be found at Furman Engaged, the university’s signature engaged learning celebration.

On April 12, students will complete the final step of their deep learning experiences – the public sharing of their work. Students synthesize what they learned about their disciplines and about themselves, while sharing with their peers and the broader community the experiences that are possible at Furman.

The day will highlight the work of more than 700 students, 200 research posters and 100 internships in the Gallery Walk, an international food festival, live music and other events.

The experiences include undergraduate research, internships, study away, creative projects, service learning, first-year writing seminars and capstone experiences. At 5:30 p.m.,  day will wrap up with a Celebration of Students at Timmons Arena, which will include a toast, charcuterie and live jazz by The All-Star Specials. View a full listing of presentations. And check out seven things to know.
