Fall Convocation at Furman University heralds a new academic year and serves as an opportunity to “underscore the purpose and expectations of academic life at our university, and to honor those among us whose achievements inspire us,” Furman President Elizabeth Davis said during her welcome address. WYFF News 4’s Jennifer Ready was on campus Aug. 22 to capture the event, including a special handshake between Davis and Joshua Swope ’23, student body president. Davis also commented on the enthusiasm swirling around campus this year without the weight of COVID 19 protocols.
