On behalf of Parents Council, we would like to welcome the parents of the Class of 2018 and new transfer students to Furman! You have become members of a very special family…the Furman family.
Furman is a very special place where students, faculty, staff and parents work together to further your sons’ and daughters’ education, personal growth and success. Furman has had some good news in recent months. The University, which has one of the top mock trial programs in the country, learned it will host the American Mock Trial Association’s national championship tournament in 2016. Also, U.S. News and World Report ranked Furman among the nation’s top liberal arts colleges for its commitment to strong undergraduate teaching, and the University was included on a new nationwide list of 100 colleges that do an outstanding job of teaching sustainability and promoting it in their communities.
We hope you will join us for Family Weekend on September 26-28. What better way to spend a fall weekend than at Furman. Our beautiful campus will be filled with excitement and there will be lots of fun and informative activities for the entire family.
We hope you will join us in support of the Furman Parents Fund or another designation of importance to you and your student. Your annual gift to Furman provides a very important source of funding to the university for maintaining and enhancing the high quality programs and facilities enjoyed by our students. A gift of any amount is important and appreciated.
We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends this fall. We wish you and your students a most successful year at Furman.
