Athletic Excellence

Our tradition of athletic achievement is a source of pride to students and alumni. Through the years our teams have recorded 177 Southern Conference championships (regular season and tournament) and won two national crowns (women’s golf in 1976 and I-AA football in 1988).

We are working to maintain this tradition while bringing the university to national prominence in all sports. Doing so will extend support to such areas as student recruitment, cultural diversity on campus, and school spirit.

The challenge is to provide resources and facilities to ensure that all Furman teams continue to compete on a level field with other institutions. Momentum for these efforts is building.

Join our team, and help us take our athletics program to the next level.
