At Furman's Old Campus, social clubs were an intricate part of life. Upon movement to the new campus, however, many more opportunities to be involved arose, as the academic arena expanded and the desire for involvement grew. Clubs gave students a chance to excel outside of the classroom and make new acquaintances. These clubs helped the students become more involved. Clubs such as the Traffic Club, which was started in 1965 to help improve mobility on the new campus, allowed the students to be involved in something personally related to them. One social club that took a major hit from the move was fraternities. Forced off campus by the Baptist executive board of Furman, students lost their main social outlet when the fraternities were dissolved. The Baptists even banned social functions such as the fraternity formal (pictured above). Students reacted with anger, as they had no where to gather and hang out. Fraternities were later re-instated on Furman's campus as social clubs but did not gain national affiliation until many years later.
