‘Carry on and be strong’

To our Furman students

Furman is more than a place. It’s a community – a community held together by a common bond of purpose, resilience and strength in the face of adversity.

As students enter a second week of online learning, Furman faculty and coaches shared a message of encouragement and inspiration from their new work spaces. The classrooms and fields have temporarily been replaced by home offices and backyards, but the university remains as united as ever.
