President’s Address

President Dr. Luther F. Carter, Contributing Writer

Dear Students,


On behalf of the faculty and staff, I want to welcome you to the Francis Marion University campus. We’ve been looking forward to your arrival and are delighted you’re here to begin the 2013 fall semester.


For new students, we are pleased that you’ve chosen this university to further your education. For returning students, we’re especially glad to have you back on campus. You may note that we’re in the process of renovating a few buildings across the campus. Our desire is to ensure the delivery of quality programs in modern and functional facilities for faculty, staff and students.


Francis Marion has a campus environment that both nurtures and challenges students to achieve their potential. We offer a variety of strong academic programs, all of which are taught by dedicated faculty who excel in their respective disciplines. I encourage each of you to introduce yourself to your professors early in the semester and approach them for guidance with any questions you may have.


Good luck in the coming year, and let me know if I may assist you in any way.




Luther F. Carter

President, Francis Marion University
