California Girl at Furman?


I am attending Furman this fall and I am coming all the way from California. I am wondering if anyone else has attended Furman coming from California and if they could let me know if they felt out of place or anything. Do a lot of people come from California? Or is it mostly people from the South East? (I also am a Biology major and was wondering if anyone had recs for good teachers for intro!)

I graduated from Furman this year. Though I cannot speak to the experience of being out of place (i’m from Atlanta), I can tell you that Furman’s student body is homogenous in many ways including region. A majority of students are from the southeast, mostly Atlanta, Charlotte, Greenville, Nashville, and other cities nearby.
