Campus Housing: Particularly in the older buildings.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Ferrum nightlife is what you make it. There are no bars are clubs close by that students frequent to. Most of the parties are held within walking distance of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Ferrum College would be most accurately represented by the consumption of alcohol. It is the most popular "drug" here at Ferrum.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Ferrum College Athletics are popular as most of the students that attend Ferrum are athletes. However, those who do not participate can still be active in intramural sports and from a student's perspective intramural sports are still very competitive and fun for all! With Ferrum being having a small number of students, athletics here is what brings the student population together. The atmosphere at atheletic events here at Ferrum represents the greatly spirited student population that make Ferrum College what it is.

College Freshman

Majors: There were no requirements to be accepted into my program and I feel that this is concerning because the validity of my program is questionable.

College Freshman

Majors: Because my program had zero requirements and is not very challenging I do not feel as though I am truly earning a degree. The most stressful issue I have with my current school is that I wish to double major in Business and Psychology but this college requires me to also earn a liberal arts degree and makes it almost impossible to finish school in 4 years.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness is fairly light, and the police are only involved when their is an issue the RA's can't deal with.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been several issues with guns being on campus and students being sexually harassed or raped within the dorm rooms. The large amount of violence that has occurred compared to the number of students on campus is outrages. The only available health clinic is a not a nurses office and is only a clinic that has very limited hours of operation. This created issues when I recieved a concussion my first semester and was not able to get to the hospital or see a trained professional.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather during the winter is usually windy, cold, and rainy. During the summer it is usually extremely hot and humid.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The closet town is 20 minutes away and the only available dining options are fast food and two sit down restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Academics: My work load does not seem very challenging. The most challenging part is trying to earn my double majors and having the college insist that I also complete the schools liberal arts degree. The amount of requirements to earn the liberal arts degree is quite stressful when it does not relate to either of my desired majors.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is some drug usage but I myself do not associate with it so I do not know much about it.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: A majority of the students have conservatives views, and many come from rural areas. There are very few open mended students.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttle is only available on weekends and is always very cramped. Some students end up sitting on the floor for an hour drive and because there is only one shuttle it is always late.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Initially I wanted to go to Penn State, but my uncle shut that option down quick when they didn't offer a lot of grant money. So when I first visited Ferrum I hated it, I didn't want to be there! Once I actually started attending Ferrum and meeting people started to appreciate my decision. It isn't a school that every city person can attend, but I love the small environment and friendly community. For professors to know me personally and speak when they see me is heart warming and I feel special every time. I love Ferrum and wouldn't transfer at all! It's the right school for me.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is alright, but we're trying to make it better. Recently I became a member of Delta Phi Epsilon and when we get back to school from break we are having a conference to improve Greek life. We plan on discussing designated housing for greek and more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining hall is alright, I think they could do better if they took suggestions from us to see what we actually like. When I don't eat in the dining hall we have Papa John's, Subway, a hotdog stand, and a food cart called the Crazy Cuke.
