Known for their hospitality and warm nature, the residents of Franklin County and Rocky Mount welcome Ferrum College students to their businesses, churches, volunteer organizations, and community events. In Rocky Mount, just down the road from Ferrum College, you can shop for necessities, find a variety of restaurants from Mexican to Italian, catch a movie, bowl a game, visit historic sites or even try paintball! Two local public golf courses are also popular with Ferrum students. It’s all part of a small town experience you won’t soon forget.
