At Francis Marion University, we know that deciding where to attend college is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. That's why we believe it's so important to visit. It's the best way to know if FMU is right for you. Plus, we're proud of our beautiful 400+ acre campus, and we like to show you first hand why we believe FMU is such a great educational value. We've made visiting easy, with tours scheduled most weekdays and select Saturdays throughout the year. If you can't find a published time to suit you, give us a call and we will try to make additional arrangements. During your visit, you'll have the chance to meet with an admissions counselor. To meet a faculty member, or a staff member from another department, please ask for availability while making the tour reservation. You'll also meet with one of our exceptional student Diplomats to find out what FMU is really like from the student's perspective.
