Living in the Upstate

It’s fair to say Furman has a lot in common with her home city. Furman and Greenville are driven, restless and entrepreneurial. They are both Southern gems: a flourishing city that is a model for others, and a thriving university, consistently ranked among the top private liberal arts universities and recognized for the engagement of its students, faculty, and alumni in the broader world.

Furman also shares something deeper with Greenville: a sense of civic pride and duty to help and serve others. As an advocate for community and economic development, our faculty, students and staff work with business and community partners to meet today’s challenges. Together, we’re improving the quality of life in our city.​
