THE CLASS OF SPRING 2020
FMU Celebrates Class
Of 2020 at the end of
An unusual year
The end of the spring semester is usually marked by a special milestone at Francis Marion University. For FMU’s class of 2020, it marks the end of one of the strangest periods of their life. Classes were completed online, and most students never returned to campus after spring break.
GREAT GRAD STORIES
FMU’s Glasgow ready
To jump right into the
World of healthcare
Kennedy Glasgow has not led a sheltered life. And that’s not going to end now as she graduates from Francis Marion University with a nursing degree.
Ahquin’s plans come
Together With FMU

“Purpose Never Dies”
For Francis Marion’s
When Rischard Brown arrived at Francis Marion University four years ago, he carried many of the same worries that many freshmen bring. Would he like it? Would he succeed? Would he fit in?
From Fakenham to Florence:

Parra is right on track,
Career, MBA next in line
At Francis Marion
College worked out just the way Derek Parra thought it would. The Scranton, S.C. native came to Francis Marion University because he thought it was a great value and he believed he’d find a nurturing environment. He found all of that and more.
He wasn’t planning
To stay at FMU,
Now he’s a Patriot for life
Old hands at Francis Marion University can stop reading right now. You’ve heard this one before. It’s the one about the student who came to FMU “for just one year,” planning to transfer when that was done, and wound up never leaving.
