Ferrum College Reviews
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!
Honestly, college is what you make it, but no matter what you try to "make," Ferrum is a horrible school to attend. For starters, the school hides anything that happens on campus. It's like a little cult. Anything that happens at Ferrum, stays at Ferrum, whether it's a stabbing, rapes, people dying, multiple sexual assault cases - everything is hidden. We pay $42,000 a year for: horrible food, secrecy within the school and campus, moldy dorms and restrooms, no real fun activities, barely any opportunities of having a "college experience," a lot of professors that don't care about you and don't want you to succeed. Ferrum isn't a good school and when you try to leave the school you can barely transfer your credits over. Don't go to Ferrum. It isn't a good school, AT ALL.
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!
