    Tons! Networking galas, vocation tests, and lots of support from the career office.

    All of the above- most Furman students are given the ability to participate in research studies, present that research at conferences, and participate in internships. Internships are best for networking and making connections to jumpstart the job search following graduation. There is not a specific course in preparing for the "real world," how could there be since every job is so different. Instead, Furman prepares students by teaching them how to think analytically, problem solve, and adapt to new environments while building relationships with other students and professors at the same time.

    Very smart kids that were not necessarily brilliant but were type a, perfectionistc students that worked hard for their grades. Conservative relative to the general u.s. college population.

    Furman is a traditionally conservative formerly Baptist school that has become progressively more liberal and diverse over the years. It's on a beautiful campus and is staff by the most supportive faculty and staff.

    Collaborative, open culture with a diverse group of students from all over the country and the world. There was no bullying that I was aware of, and most people were generally friendly and welcoming to new friends.

    Computer labs and classrooms are state of the art, completely up to date. Dorms and their bathrooms were kept very clean, and for the most part were large enough to live comfortably. Dining hall had great selection of different foods, and was always clean.

    You cannot call anything most unique (that is like saying "most one-of-a-kind"). A unique activity was cultural life programs (clp).

    I don't know what the latest groups are, but I do remember that Furman offered something for everyone, including unique study abroad opportunities.

    Greek life was probably the most popular, but many students were involved in a variety of other organizations such as DJing for the radio station, or playing in a band, or joining a leadership council.

    Mock trial team is good. Not sure what this questions is asking. College is about finding your group. Ultimate Frisbee and just the people on my freshman hall worked well for me
