Recreation Options

  • Lots of cool grass for running, playing and napping.  Ranked and awarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation, Furman abounds with garden, grass and tree areas for lounging and playing.  Between the music complex and the Lakeside dorms is a large area popular with frisbee and kickball players.  Bring a blanket and enjoy a picnic meal beside the Furman lake - but don't feed the wildlife!
  • Walking and biking paths are located throughout the campus, including the adjacent Swamp Rabbit Trail, a refurbished train path ideal for longer hikes and bikes. The trail is a scenic walkway that stretches from Travelers Rest to downtown Greenville, passing through the west edge of the campus. Campus Map.
