One of the greatest tools in finding your college home is a campus visit. Setting foot on a college campus can be the deciding factor when choosing where you will call home for this next chapter. Many students say that just driving though our picturesque gates and around the campus gave them that “feeling.” You know the one, that sense of belonging and community. That ability to picture yourself as a student, walking down the path to Furman Hall, or around the lake. So, how do we cope when that ability has been taken away temporarily? Hopefully our virtual visit options will give you a sense of what Furman is all about until you can make the journey for a visit and tour. Someday soon I hope I can greet you with some Furman swag, a smile, and a warm purple and white cookie. In the meantime, may I suggest you connect with us in some other creative ways! See below for a list of our virtual visit options.
Virtual Campus Information Sessions
Join an admissions counselor for a guided presentation through our information session. You will learn about Furman’s history, the admissions process, vital information about class size, research and internships, The Furman Advantage, and scholarships and financial aid. These sessions take place Monday-Friday at 3:30pm, with additional sessions offered at 6:00pm on Tuesday and Thursday.
Virtual Student Panels
Join current students as they share their experiences about student life, activities, academics, and life as a Paladin. These panels are available on Monday or Friday afternoons at 4:00pm. This is a wonderful way to get a sense of the Furman community and hear about the exciting opportunities that our students take part in.
Paladin Preview is especially designed for our admitted students. This panel is designed to give students specific relevant information in order to aid in making that final decision. Current students will share next steps and answer any questions about how to become a Paladin. Paladin Preview is offered on Wednesday evenings, at 5:00pm. To learn more, please visit our newly designed Admitted Students site!
Ask a Faculty Member
Want to learn more about a specific academic area? You can request to connect with a faculty member. You might want to know what the overall requirements for the major look like or study away and research opportunities. Submit your request and we will work on getting you in contact with someone so you can get a firsthand glimpse into academics at Furman. Visit our site for more information:
Ask a Paladin
Our fabulous Admissions Ambassadors are greatly missing their tours and time connecting with prospective students. They are eager to answer any questions you may have about their experiences. If you would like to connect with a current student, please do so through the “Ask a Paladin” feature. We will gladly get you on touch with one of our students. You can find more information here. We look forward to hearing from you!
All of these options are explained in greater detail on our website. Please visit that page often, as it is full of information and opportunities for you to connect with our office. We hope to “see” you soon!
