Our first stop on the college visit circuit took place at a small, liberal arts (2700 students) school set in Greenville, South Carolina. We were all taken with the beautiful lakeside campus with rose gardens, water fountains and well-maintained traditional architecture. The friendly admissions office touted the Furman Advantage, emphasizing the college’s active education through collaboration, civic engagement, technology, research, study away, and internships. 97% of Furman grads are employed or attend graduate school after leaving upon graduation. From Furman, we headed to Clemson University-a large private university known for its excellent academic programs and spirited campus community. The Tiger enthusiasm was evident throughout the campus with students and administrators alike donning theClemson trademark color- ORANGE. Students can walk to the small town adjacent to campus which houses many Clemson oriented shops. The $32,000 price tag for out of state students is a great value for families, with over 29% of the student population coming from outside South Carolina. Go Tigers!
