FMU has the look and the feel of a small, liberal arts college with all the benefits of a state-supported, comprehensive university. We are located on 300 acres just east of Florence, SC. We are an hour’s drive from Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand and four hours from the Blue Ridge Mountains. With a metropolitan-area population of 125,000, the city of Florence is nestled alongside Interstate Highway 95, the main north-south corridor from the New England area to Miami, and at the eastern end of Interstate Highway 20. Amtrak, bus service, and a regional airport serve the city.
We were founded in 1970 and our campus has modern classrooms and residence facilities, which provide a great learning environment for our students. We have the largest library in the northeast section of SC.
