National Public Radio reporter Elissa Nadworny recently stopped by Furman University, where she spoke with SGA President Griffin Mills ’21 and several other Furman students, faculty and staff members. Nadworny also visited a class conducted by Furman’s Geoffrey Habron, a professor of sustainability sciences, to see the monumental efforts the university is taking to keep students safe on campus while providing an engaging education.

The visit was part of Nadworny’s “College Road Trip” series, and a segment of her interview with Mills appeared in a “Weekend Edition Sunday” story about the University of North Carolina’s shift back to remote instruction following several outbreaks of COVID-19 on and off campus. Lister to the four-minute NPR interview here.
