A framed picture of an iconic campus scene has pride of place in the president’s hallway at Furman. On the white mat that surrounds the painting are hundreds of student signatures captured in the days before Elizabeth Davis’ inauguration. Dr. Davis sees this gift every time she arrives at her office door. “As I said in my inaugural address, students are a true source of joy for me,” she says. “After they gave this to me, we hung it in a prominent place to make it clear that I’m here for them and they are always welcome visitors in my office.” President Davis talked about her first year as Furman’s president in an interview for The Duke Endowment E-Newsletter.
