Furman Connect

Furman Connect is a series of online alumni networking events recently launched by the Alumni and Parent Engagement Office, in partnership with other campus offices. Furman Connect events, powered by Brazen, facilitate text-based alumni-to-alumni networking and alumni-to-student mentoring. Participants can join events from anywhere using a computer, smartphone, or tablet, and no audio or video is required.  Future events will focus on networking by job function, industry, region, major, as well as around conversation topics. If you have ideas for future Furman Connect events, feel free to reach out to Sarrin Warfield, assistant director of alumni and parent engagement (career development and programming), at sarrin.warfield@furman.edu.
