A weekend well spent

Furman welcomed more than 600 guests to campus Nov. 10–12 for Family Weekend 2017. Festivities kicked off with a pre-game tailgate featuring a band and BBQ, followed by a Furman football win over The Citadel.

During the weekend, families were able to learn more about engaged learning opportunities available to students such as study away and internships, vocational exploration and career development. Other fun activities included trolley tours of campus, the chance to ride a seven-person circular bike, and the annual 5K Fun Run. The weekend concluded with the much anticipated 35th Annual Student Talent Showcase.
