2015-2016 Report to Parents
Francis Marion University
Founded in 1970, Francis Marion University is named in honor of South Carolina’s Revolutionary War hero, General Francis Marion.” FMU is one of South Carolina’s 13 four-year, state-assisted universities. The University provides a liberal arts education in a broad range of undergraduate majors enhanced by the School of Business, School of Education, and School of Health Sciences. FMU also offers graduate programs in business, education, psychology, nursing, physician assistant studies.
FMU offers a learning environment that is small enough to afford students personalized attention from faculty and staff, and large enough to let students expand their horizons. While 95 percent of its students come from South Carolina, the University enrolls students from 36 states and 16 foreign countries. The student-faculty ratio is 15 to 1, and the average class size is 21.
FMU is located in Florence, S.C., on nearly 500 wooded acres with beautiful foliage and landscaping. Campus facilities include modern classroom buildings, laboratories and residence halls. The University also has a presence in downtown Florence. The Luther F. Carter Center for Health Sciences is fully equipped with the latest educational technology including a simulation center, and dedicated laboratory space for anatomy, physical examinations, and clinical skills training, among other things. The FMU Performing Arts Center, also located in downtown Florence, is a 68,000 square foot, state-of-the-art performance and educational venue.
The Pee Dee Education Center is located on the south end of the FMU campus. The Center is a regional educational consortium serving 19 area school districts, 72,000 students and 5,000 teachers. FMU works closely with the Pee Dee Education Center to provide resources and services to school districts in the Pee Dee, such as the Pee Dee Mathematics and Science Regional Center which is housed in the facility.
The University offers to the community programs and services in continuing education, technical and professional assistance, industrial and economic development, and artistic and cultural enrichment. Many cultural activities (concerts, lectures, plays, art exhibits, planetarium and observatory shows, and film series) are offered free to the public.
The University has an outstanding NCAA athletic program with seven sports each for men and women. The University's school colors are red, white, and blue, and the mascot is a patriot.
