Best Kept College Secrets

Colleges for Real People

Furman University – Greenville, South Carolina

It hardly seems possible that Furman is included in a collection of best kept college secrets; Furman is one of the most beautiful colleges in any region and quite possibly the most beautifully appointed college in the South.  The American Society of Landscape Architects places the Furman campus among the most beautiful places in America!  The casual visitor, struck by the lavish landscaping and stunning vistas might well understand why the college is often called, “The Country Club of the South,” but may not be familiar with the recent study revealing that Furman has sent more students on to earn a Ph.D. than any other private liberal arts college in the South – that includes Davidson and Sewanee – and has produced six Rhodes Scholars and seventeen Truman Scholars.
