Family Weekend

Each Fall we invite you to experience our campus. Next year, we can’t be sure we’ll be together, but that won’t stop us from being connected. Please save the date for Furman University’s Family Weekend/Virtual Family Connect, a way for families to learn about their students’ home away from home.
