Francis Marion University’s compact, walkable campus is set on 468 wooded acres in the heart of South Carolina’s Pee Dee Region. It’s an inviting, peaceful place that’s just right for some serious studies and … some serious recreation. Some have said it is South Carolina’s most beautiful college campus. We might have said that. We might be biased, but we think that’s pretty close to the truth. No need to take our word for it. Come visit and see for yourself. Tours and Open Houses are available on a regular basis. While you’re here to see what there is to see, ask some questions, talk to some students and maybe even chat with a professor or two. You’ll have a good time, we promise!
