Years at Ferrum:
3 as a transfer student, lifetime as an Alum
Not only do I live and breathe music, but I enjoy doing anything outdoors. I love
hiking when the sun is shining and sitting in my reclining chair with a piece of classic
literature when the rain or snow comes. My friends and I regularly get together to
play music; I play the guitar and the mandolin. I love all types of music, but I
enjoy my roots the most; bluegrass, folk, and singer/songwriter are amongst my favorites,
but it's nothing strange to hear classical, punk rock, or even 90's and early 2000's
hip hop coming from my speakers.
Favorite Place(s) on Campus:
The replica of the Thoreau cabin is almost as serene and quiet as it gets if you're
up for the hike to get there. Otherwise, I love Stanley Library for its vast amount
of books and information. As a student between classes, however, I called the couch
in the Britt Hall lobby my "office."
Favorite Panther Moment:
The Folk Life Festival that rolls around each year is by far my favorite event and
moment of being a Ferrum Panther. This is a great opportunity to learn about the culture
that helped shape an early America and Southwest Virginia as well as see new innovations
that have come with that culture. The music is diverse and awesome as well as the
people who attend and put on exhibits. I hope to see you there in the fall.
Why you should choose Ferrum:
Ferrum is far beyond a college: It is a community of teachers and learners. Just
when you think that you are simply a student, you find yourself teaching your professors
or your peers something new, or a new perspective on something. The borders of the
college seemingly extend all the way into the surrounding community and they definitely
don't stop there. Here at Ferrum College, you can expect to learn something new about
yourself, your community, and your world every single day.
