As a classical soloist Whitney sang with the Florence Masterworks Choir in their presentation of Dan Forest’s Requiem for the Living. She also performed as a chorus member in several of Belmont University’s operas. Prior to graduate school, Whitney studied songwriting and country music, and even performed in several of Nashville’s famous honky-tonks.

Affordability

FMU has the lowest cost of attendance of any college in South Carolina, based on rankings from CollegeFactual.com.

Meaningful Academics

The liberal arts remain the foundation of a great education for all FMU students, but we’re developing high-caliber professional programs to meet the 21st century needs of both our students and our community.

The Right Size

No giant lecture halls here. We keep class sizes small and the crowds thin at FMU because that’s the environment that best facilitates learning. A 15:1 student-professor ratio, and right about 4,000 students sound like “just right” numbers to us.

Aesthetics

Students can walk our lovely, tree-lined campus in 20 minutes, but most take longer because in a place this pretty, you have to stop and enjoy nature’s beauty.
