Students, past and present, are what the university is all about. Students will forever fill a role, whether they are current students or long graduated. Alumni are the life blood of a university and "Furman's blood runs deep."
Special Collections and Archives has always depended on its alumni to help build our collections. Whether manuscripts or memorabilia, alumni collections help us to preserve the history of Furman University and Greenville Woman’s College, and document activities or events after student life.
These collections show the range of our archival collections, but they also suggest the many gaps waiting to be filled. We welcome donations from alumni, students, and community neighbors who have historical materials on student life that can be preserved and made available to the students and researchers of the future.
