Ferrum is a great school for students who like the country and the small school feel. My class sizes ranged from 5-25 depending on the class. The professors I had were caring and helpful; they made a huge difference in my academic success. My advice to new panthers would be- attend all the campus activities you can! They are filled with fun, and that's where you will meet your college career friends. A lot of information is handed out during these activities, and thats how you will stay ahead of the game!

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.

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.
