Summer Deadlines

May is quickly coming to an end!  As we look toward the rest of the summer and your eventual arrival on campus, we want you to take note of some EXTREMELY important deadlines that will be coming up over the next week or so.  You can, of course, find all this information on the New Students Checklist, located on the New Students website, but just in case, here goes:

If you have already completed these items, great!  And thank you!  Otherwise, please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions as you complete these tasks and prepare to begin life at Furman this fall!

Welcome Class of 2020!

Congratulations on becoming a part of the Furman Paladin family!  We are so excited that you will be joining us at Furman this fall, and hope that this note finds you eager to get started.

We’re glad you have made your way to the New Students website,, and hope you check back frequently!  The New Students website is the place to go for all things related to the beginning of your Furman experience.  We designed this site so you would have one central place to find answers to the questions you might have about what to expect when you arrive on campus.  The key to this site is the New Student Checklist, where you have a chronological listing of the important deadlines and submissions that you must complete before you arrive in the fall.  Complete all these items and you are ready to start your Furman career!

New students will regularly receive emails from us throughout the summer, so it is important to check your email frequently.  These messages are intended to draw your attention to a wide variety of opportunities available for incoming students.  They will also provide detail for a number of tasks you must complete before you arrive on campus, such as your housing assignment request and submission of immunization records.  We want to make sure that, along the way, you are fully informed about how to get involved in anything and everything FURMAN.

We will keep this blog updated with current information as well – items that should be on your “to do” list and information about upcoming opportunities.  Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.  You can email us at or call us at 864-294-2076.  We look forward to getting to know you and, once again, welcome to the Furman family!
