Health & Safety: Police Station is right across the street from the main campus, they will show up within seconds.

Overall Experience: 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!

Campus Housing: My housing was fabulous freshmen through sophomore year, though I started in nicer housing due to my GPA in high school.

Athletics: The addition of the new athletics building on the backside of campus has really improved our athletics department.

Overall Experience: There are no words to describe how the professors impacted their students. 95% of my professors were the most approachable, knowledgeable, and caring professors I could have asked for. I was part of the Health Sciences program, so I can't speak for the other disciplines, but I have heard many good things. The only downside is the price of the private school.

Overall Experience: I love so much about Ferrum! Everyone seems so sweet, the campus is beyond beautiful and I know that the faculty and staff really cares. What you see on the internet and based on the websites you cannot tell how amazing the school is! If you are considering Ferrum, I really do urge you to visit, you will not be disappointed!

Health & Safety: For me it is too soon to tell. I haven't witnessed anything bad, but the staff takes health and safety VERY seriously, as they should

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Students pay average for regular 2 person dorms, yet most of the rooms aren't air conditioned. Make sure to bring some fans.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only several sororities and fraternities... like 2 all together.. so as you can guess its not that big of a deal. I'm still trying to get a read on them though. I think I will join if its not too expensive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't know that much about it yet, but by the way people talk about it, it isn't a huge deal, but the people involved stay busy. The professors try to work with everyone as much as they can, but the defiantly understand that student athletes have schedules and they try to help with that as much as they can, but that doesn't mean that they will accept excuses from them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm still a new student so I cannot speak to the entire experience, but from what I have seen the faculty and staff truly care about us students and they take pride in working at Ferrum. To be honest I only chose Ferrum as a last resort, but I really wish I had visited before I decided because I would have fallen in love with the school from the first sight. The staff are really friendly and you get that very obvious southern vibe. Even the cafeteria staff was very friendly and introduced themselves and make you feel at home. The campus is considered small, but I would actually consider it a medium sized campus with a high school sized student body.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They try their best to keep us safe and always keep us informed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have to have PowerPoint slides, I can't do the oral notes. But other than that some professors go a little fast so you don't have time to write everything down.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You can get a job if you really wanted one

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay, I just feel bad for lakeside. They don't have a/c and heat when they want to, but the school provides each room with a fan. I wish east Bassett had an elevator too, the steps are a workout.

Athletics: They always do their best.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is nice in my opinion, the weather can get crazy but the people here are nice and there are animals everywhere. It's a good school with what I am majoring in. Everybody knows each other and the professors try their best to help students succeed and be all that they can be.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most students do smoke marijuana or take adderall on a daily basis

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is always something going on whether it be a stabbing or gun shots or a sexual assualt

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had some really great professors who are willing to help you at all times, and actually care about your grade.And i have also had some who do not care about your grade period and are never in their offices during office hours.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms riddick, chapman, and sue wes are horrible. They smell awful, and they do not have a/c at all. Bassett is nice east side is better than north sidde. East side has air conditioning units in every room . North side does not and you cant control the heat or air manually. Arthur, Moore, Clark, and Dyer are the nicest places to live. They are new, clean and very nice

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: To me the whole greek life scenario is not for me. I dont believe in paying for friends. We only have one national fraternity and one national sorority, the rest are just locals. The nationals do lots of philanthropy which is great but they all act very snobby, and basically trash talk everyone in their frat/ sorority

4 College Freshman

Athletics: For the most part, our schools athletic teams are actually good. There's a great fan support at all games.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is very small and so are the class sizes. However there isnt much to do around the school. The teachers are very helpful but the school could be a little more updated. Tuition is 42k a year and half of the dorms don't even have air conditioning systems.
