Greek Life

Furman has 14 active sororities and fraternities on campus. Unlike other institutions, our Greek community does not recruit new members until the spring. This gives new students an opportunity to become familiar with their new surroundings before determining if a sorority or fraternity is right for them. Visit Greek Life.

Community outreach

We encourage our students to serve the community through our largest student organization: Heller Service Corps. Supported by a $1.5 million endowment, this organization places more than 1,800 students in agencies serving the community each year. Learn how you can get involved.

Intramural and club sports

At Furman, you can play as hard as you work. Our recreational leagues run the gamut, from flag football to sand volleyball to ultimate frisbee. Join a sports team.
