Furman campus (large photo thread)

Recommended Posts

Some photos of Furman from this weekend. Joined some friends from Providence in touring the campus as their daughter may be attending Furman in 2006. Sort of a hazy day, so no deep blue sky, but there is hint of fall color in many of the trees. This campus is a real plus for Greenville! :thumbsup:

FABULOUS photos, gsupstate! Great work and thank you for posting them for everyone. :thumbsup: I spent alot of time there while growing up. Too bad I have little chance to make it out to the lakeside concerts. A great Greenville tradition. B)

A good friend of mine built the timber frame gazebo across the lake from the students' center/dining hall. The soccer field is also a great classic place to watch the real "football." Furman is always a team to watch in this sport.

The Furman Campus looked very sad on Friday and Saturday due to the ice storm, especially along the Mall between the Main Gate and the Lay Physical Activities Center. :cry: I went un-armed with a camera or I would have taken some photos to preserve my sadness. Suffice it to say that trees and limbs were down throughout the campus.

Really sad. :cry: The amount of trees that came down in this ice storm was simply incredible. Some areas looked more liked a hurricane than an ice storm.

I used the next airport exit/entrance on Saturday and Sunday, thank God all the new plantings were OK. There were multiple trees down (large existing trees) unfortunately. On the upside, the airport drive looks great! They used stone for siderails much the way it's done in ICAR. A new water feature has been added, with stone all around. Gorgeous plantings! :thumbsup:

It's odd that I live so close to Furman University and visit it so often, yet I never seem to get over there to take any photos. So, I decided to get out and walk around today and snap some. I'm happy to report that the trees along the Furman Mall didn't suffer as much damage from the December 17th Ice Storm as I had originally thought. The limbs have been trimmed and most of the debris has been cleaned up. It's looking almost back to normal again! :thumbsup:

Here are some of my photos from this morning...

RT, these are fantastic photos of a breathtakingly beautiful university! Thank you for posting them here. Many people just don't really know what we have here in Greenville. :shades:
