2018 Advantage Scholars

Advantage Scholars

A program of the Riley Institute
June 17 – 21, 2018

The Riley Institutes welcomed its inaugural class of Advantage Scholars to Furman’s campus on Sunday, June 17. These incoming Furman freshmen are recipients of the Duke, Hollingsworth, Lay and Townes academic scholarships. They spent four days on campus listening to speakers, discussing critical issues with their peers, and exploring their community. With four fabulous counselors, they also had lots of fun and began building bonds that will last them throughout their time at Furman and beyond.
