What is Panther PAWS?
Panther PAWS is an event involving new students and their parents or other family
members. 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 Students,
- introduce you to many of the people who will work with you here,
- help you and your parents or family members learn about services provided by the college,
- and give you the opportunity to talk with faculty about the academic program and classes
Who should come to Panther PAWS?
All students who have been admitted to Ferrum College and have paid their $250 deposits
must come to one of the PAWS sessions, which are scheduled throughout the summer.
Parents, guardians, or one or two other family members are strongly encouraged to
attend, as well.
