What is Panther PAWS?

Panther PAWS is an event for new students and their families. New Ferrum families come to campus for a day to make new friends, learn about the college, and meet administrators, professors, and staff members.

What can Panther PAWS do for you?

  • Introduce you to other Ferrum College students
  • Introduce you to many of the people who will work with you here
  • Help you and your family learn about services provided by the College
  • Provide you the opportunity to talk with faculty about academic programs and classes at Ferrum.

 Who should come to Panther PAWS?

All admitted students who have paid their $250 Confirmation Deposit must attend one of our PAWS sessions. Parents, guardians, or one or two other family members are strongly encouraged to attend as well.
