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.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't have a car or friends with cars you are pretty much screwed. Well, not really we have a campus shuttle that takes students to various locations, but the time schedule can get crazy. The shuttle is free, but it could be a little more reliable.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Shuttle Services – At Ferrum we have a shuttle but that run Thursday through Saturday. On all of those days the shuttle takes students to the local movie theater, farmer's market, and Wal-Mart. Only on Saturday does the shuttle take students to the mall in Roanoke.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: You do not really need transportation to get around campus because everything is so close, but to get off campus the school offers a bus that takes you to the town at any particular stop offered or to Roanoke. If that is not good enough for you if your have a classmate or a friend that is going that way just ask and mostly you can catch a ride with them!

College Junior

Transportation: There is no transportation provided at Ferrum. If you're a commuter, you must drive. Freshmen can have cars on campus. You need a car because the town is 15 minutes away.
