A Special Senior Tribute to the Class of 2020

The class of 2020 during orientation.

We’re celebrating our seniors – Furman University’s class of 2020!

President Elizabeth Davis and Senior Class President Jaylon Goodwin will deliver a pre-recorded video message on May 9, the date the university had planned to gather and confer seniors’ degrees in front of the Furman family. The video will be emailed to seniors and their families in the morning and posted on Furman’s website that morning.

At 3 p.m. on May 9, we will also feature a live performance dedicated to the class of 2020 by singer-songwriter Emily Scott Robinson ’09 on Furman’s Instagram. Please check the Furman news page and social media channels on May 9 for details and to view Emily’s special senior tribute concert live on Furman’s Instagram at 3 p.m. that afternoon. The show will be available for 24 hours.

In addition to this tribute, the Furman community is celebrating seniors’ achievements, including award winners  and our Senior Spotlights, and sharing messages of encouragement, celebration and congratulations in many ways. To show your support for seniors, be sure to post your personal messages using #Furman2020 from your public Instagram and Twitter social media accounts.

As President Davis and others have shared, Furman will  hold an in-person Commencement ceremony and celebration for the class of 2020 in the fall. We will provide updates on those plans soon.
