One of the South’s best

According to the 2017 Forbes rankings, Furman University is listed among the “Top 25 Colleges in the South.” Furman, which was ranked No. 16, is the only South Carolina school to make the just-released list.

According to the magazine, the Forbes “Top Colleges” ranking places “its focus solely on the direct benefits a college or university provides its students. Favoring output over input, we eschew common metrics like acceptance rate, endowment and freshmen SAT scores—numbers that say far more about a school’s “prestige” than its actual effectiveness—and instead favor variables like alumni salary, graduation rate and student satisfaction.”
