Testimonials

Testimonials


The Younts Center was the perfect facility for our staff retreat last week. We appreciate your attention to detail and for fulfilling all of our requests to perfection. Your staff and the catering staff were very helpful, courteous, and eager to please. We look forward to returning to the center for other events.

Excellent accommodations. Excellent ambiance. It was a great place for our annual offsite and we hope to use it again in the future.

I always enjoy coming to Furman University for these workshops. I only wish I could find other facilities to make this as easy as you do.
