SC Picture of the Month – Furman's Fabled BelltowerIn the spirit of college football season, this month's picture features the home of the mighty Furman Paladins. You may not know this, but the university has a proud history of athletic success. Its football team has claimed 12 Southern Conference titles, and Furman has more former student-athletes competing at the professional level than any other school in its conference. In 2002, Furman was the only liberal arts college ranked in Sports Illustrated's "100 Best Sports Colleges."
The school's official mascot is a knight on a horse. However, a sportswriter in the 1930s once described the Furman basketball team as Paladins – or heroic people full of chivalry and honor. The moniker stuck, and the student body voted in 1961 to make it the official nickname for all of their sports teams.

South Carolina's First 10 October EventsWarning, Sandlappers: Planning your weekend just got really complicated!
October is bursting at the seams when it comes to festivals and events. In fact, it's South Carolina's busiest month of the year – surpassing even May, which comes in at a close second. SCIWAY's calendar links to over 125 major SC events this time around. The opportunities are endless, and we couldn't dream of trying to pick the Top 10.
Since October is so packed with fun, this month we'll just list the FIRST 10 instead. And as proof of the good times to come, you'll see that this list doesn't even make it through the first two days! There are three events on the second we had to leave off!
Hopefully, these 10 events will whet your appetite, and you will click here to find ALL October events.
As always, if you are interested in adding your SC event to our calendar, please read through and fill out our event form.
Last but not least, remember that all of our calendars of events, for every month of the year, are available on SCIway website's 24/7/365 – just go to http://www.sciway.net/calendar.html.
