I was very prepared for the top businessQuite BrightEconomics
I was very prepared for the top business grad school I attended....The work was challenging, on a beautiful campus, in an area with nearby hiking, camping, white water rafting....Great soccer while I was there...Awesome to have Clint Dempsey and Ricardo Clark on the team. Working hard at Furman got me into one of the best MBA programs in the country...The grad school got me a great job...I happened to love Furman and the area...Relocationg to the Northeast was an easy transition, with the exception of the brutal winters. Best of luck with your college choice!

Y'all make sure you
Y'all make sure you stay below the the Mason-Dixon line. Keep your Wonder Bread mentality lady-like; your men in khakis. The rest of us will do the thinking -it's a big scary world out there Furman, don't ever wander too far into it.

Furman is an excellentBrightCommunications
Furman is an excellent college but if you are not a good student then you will not thrive; the academics are challenging. Often dubbed the "Country Club of the South," most students tend to be from wealthy backgrounds and are friendly and warm.
