In the spirit of Tomfoolery, the Vista House community hosts an event filled with music, food and fun each year in the fall. We use this time to celebrate the Upstate's beautifully changing scenery, experience the diverse sounds of local bands and Furman musicians, and most importantly, provide a place for students, Furman faculty members, and people in the larger community of Greenville to come together and celebrate the season with some dancing and a delicious meal. Check out the cool pictures from this event, and mark your calendars for our next big Vista House adventure!
We host brunches for Furman University students throughout the year to celebrate various events on campus. Our annual brunches include a Family Weekend brunch and Homecoming brunch. The Family Weekend brunch is a time where the families of students involved in Mere Christianity Forum can come and see Vista House, as well as learn more about this organization, and of course, eat some delicious and home-cooked food. Our Homecoming brunch is grounded in a time of celebration, as we welcome MCF alumni and joyfully learn about all the wonderful adventures they are enjoying after their time in college.
We also offer biannual Study Day brunches, occuring at the end of each semester. Our Study Day brunches allow some stressed out students to forget the trials of college finals, if only for a couple hours, and find respite in a quiet home and delicious meal. Come join us for great food and a rare time of relaxing conversation during the busiest weeks of the year!
