Francis Marion University instills in each member a sense of Patriot Pride, an ideal that you will come to embrace through learning, service, and extracurricular experiences.  Your time in college will go by in a hurry.  So, experience the “Revolution.”Make the most of every moment, have no regrets, and use the time at FMU to prepare for the opportunities that await after graduation.

Should you ever need assistance, please feel free to contact me or an SGA member.   Our number is 843-661-1361, our email is, and our office is located in the UC, Room 215.  We are here to serve you.
