College Advising Corps gets a boost

Furman President Elizabeth Davis spoke at the press conference in April 2017 to announce the university's partnership with the College Advising Corps.

Inside Higher Ed writes about the College Advising Corps, which has built a network of dedicated college counselors in high schools that serve large numbers of low-income and first-generation students in 14 states. Furman is among the colleges involved in the College Advising Corps, and the only one from South Carolina. The university launched its program in August 2017 by placing advisers in all seven high schools in Lancaster and Chester counties to help students navigate the often complex college search and application process.
