Being a first year student at Ferrum College I am learning not only in an academical sense, but I am learning much about myself. I am learning my weaknesses and strengths through the school work and my involvement in activities on the campus. The teachers are very accessible and express a desire to help their students learn. This makes the educational experience both enjoyable and rewarding. As for learning more about myself, the campus offers many opportunities for all students to get involved in clubs, co-ed sports, college level sports, and many other activities.

    Ferrum is an amazing campus where you feel like family. Teachers learn your name in small classes, and always answer questions. I love this school.

    Ferrum College is the best decision that I choose to go to continue further on my education. The teachers and staff are wonderful and are there to help you even if you think their not, plus the students here are friendly. A small college full of wonderful people, who couldn't ask for a better school?

    Ferrum College is a decent school, but definitely one that should be considered as a last resort option. For the asking price, the dorms are small and cramped, the dining hall is low quality, and there is little to know activity options outside sports and the on campus YMCA.

    DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! COACHES LIE, ADMISSIONS LIE, AND TEACHERS LIE! No matter what you are told and how nice and great they seem, it's just a scam to get you and your money here! Once you are here it is like JAIL!

    Ferrum College is a beautiful campus. Ferrum College has something for everyone. Anyone who says anything negative about it have either dropped out, transferred, or stay cooped up in their rooms.

    Over all my experience at Ferrum College has been a positive one. If you are looking for a smaller campus with a small town feel to it, Ferrum College is the place for you. With approximately 1,500 students, everyone becomes friends quickly, allowing each student to feel at home at an early stage within the school year.
