Your New Hometown


There are lots of things to see and do in the beautiful Ferrum region.  Plenty of music, dining, cultural, shopping, and employment opportunities await you right down the road.  Check out a NASCAR race in Martinsville or a top rock group in Roanoke.  And that's just the beginning.

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.

Need Transportation?

The Ferrum Express, the College's regular bus service, links Ferrum students, faculty, staff and community members with Rocky Mount and Roanoke. Click here for the Ferrum Express Map.
