Francis Marion is wonderful place to go toAverageArchitecture
Francis Marion is wonderful place to go to school. The learning environment is great and its faculty members know their stuff! They are very professional and knowledgeable. Francis Marion is not the best institution in the world, but it is a school that provides good quality education. Some of the negative posts, I believe, are over exaggerating. Some of the content in the negative posts are untrue. Individuals are entitled to their opinions, but the things in the negative posts that I have read are outrageous. The administration of Francis Marion is doing a wonderful job at managing the school. The students enjoy the enviroment, the acitivities, classes, organizations, and events on campus. It is a great learning institution for students and a great place to meet new and interesting people.

This is not aQuite BrightBiology
This is not a school where you want to spend your money. Everything is mediocre!! For me, one semester was more than enough. If you don't believe me, try it yourself..... Good Luck!!!

I talked to many professors about FMU's problems!Not so brightBiology
I talked to many professors about FMU's problems! And here is what I concluded: FMU is not doing well in the region; because they just accept anyone who applies. This creates many problems for the school. The most obvious, the majority of students are low functionning people and do not belong to college. Many of these "students" are using the school for their illegal activities. The adminsitration forces teachers to water down their standards in order to keep everyone. But still, over 70% drop out or transfer within the first year, and others will follow in the next year or two. Ultimately, I guess only about 5% of the admitted students in any semester get to graduate. To make up for the low standards and missed knowledge in the first, second, and third year, they make your last year very difficult and, sometime, they require you to take extra classes because they don't want you to be an embarassment for them after graduation but also they know you are stuck with them... As for the job, don't even dream about it. If you want to get that, you should find a real school such as CCU or Clemson U. . . That's what I did in my third semester and I am very happy where I am now. My two cents!!
