“We’re committed to not weakening and, in fact, deepening the student experience,” she said. “We know that coming out of recessions and economic troubles, and now a pandemic, students will look not for lazy rivers, but for the kinds of services and the kinds of connections that can help launch them into life. And that’s The Furman Advantage.”
