        2007-2011, Bachelor's Degree

        A Furman education gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to make a mark on this world. With an FU degree (and the well-deserved sense of confidence that comes with it), you can rest easier at night. It has SPECTACULAR professors, a gorgeous campus, and it is a very welcoming community as well. I will remember Furman as I advance in my professional career, and I will not hesitate to mention how instrumental their role in my success has been/will continue to be.
