Among the more prestigious honors that Furman University students can earn during their time at the institution is being named to the Dean’s List.
The honor is awarded to full-time undergraduates who earn a grade point average of at least 3.4 during the university’s fall and spring semesters. Traditionally, just about 25 percent of Furman students are named to Dean’s List at the end of each term.
“The rigorous academic standards at Furman are designed to challenge and motivate students to perform at their highest levels,” said Dr. John Beckford, Dean of the Faculty. “Dean’s List recipients are a distinguished collection of student-scholars who have excelled in the classroom and share a commitment to academic excellence.”
Furman, a private, undergraduate liberal arts college with 2,600 students, is widely recognized for its rigorous academic program and strong faculty. The university has a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, and ranks among the nation’s top colleges in the number of National Merit Scholars enrolled.
In 2010, Furman was listed among the nation’s top 45 liberal arts colleges in U.S. News & World Report
rankings, and The Princeton Review listed Furman among the nation’s best undergraduate institutions in its annual college guide, The Best 373 Colleges
