Tribute to the Class of 2020

We’ve got hashtags and spotlights and presidential messages, oh my!

We’re celebrating our seniors – Furman University’s class of 2020!

President Davis and Senior Class President Jaylon Goodwin will offer a special Senior Tribute video message on May 9, the date the university had planned to gather and confer seniors’ degrees in front of the Furman family.

The day will also feature a live performance dedicated to the class of 2020 by singer-songwriter Emily Scott Robinson ’09 on Furman’s Instagram. Please check the Furman news page and social media channels on May 9 for details and to view Emily’s special senior tribute concert live on Furman’s Instagram at 3 p.m. that afternoon.

In addition to this tribute, the Furman community is celebrating seniors’ achievements, including award winners  and our Senior Spotlights, and by sharing messages of encouragement, celebration and congratulations in many ways. To show your support for seniors, be sure to post your personal messages using #Furman2020.

As President Davis and others have shared, Furman will  hold an in-person Commencement ceremony and celebration for the class of 2020 in the fall. We will provide updates on those plans soon.
