Welcome fellow Golden Panthers!

Please check in regularly to see what your fellow Ferrum alumni are planning!

As a Golden Panther you are a member of a distinguished group of Ferrum College alumni who are in classes who graduated at least 50 years ago. Originally established as the 50-year Club in 1974, the Golden Panthers not only get together to socialize and reminisce, but we also do our part to give back to Ferrum College.

You can participate in the following ways:

  • Attend Athletic and Social Events on and off Campus
  • Attend the Homecoming Induction of the current 50th Reunion Class

We would love for every member of the Golden Panthers to be involved. Whether you have ideas for excursions, would like to help coordinate the Annual Fall Meeting, or financially support the Golden Panthers scholarship or Ferrum Fund please consider helping out!

Again, welcome to all Golden Panthers! It is my pleasure to serve as your Chair. My hope is to continue to bring all of us together for fun, fellowship, fundraising – and the love of Ferrum!

The Golden Panther Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 1982 with an initial gift of $12,365.  Since that time (as of September 30th, 2016) the fund has grown to over $317,299.51. The fund has provided financial aid to more than 120 students at Ferrum College in the last decade.

The GP scholarship fund is listed in the official College catalogue. The principle amount in the fund grows from contributions and bequests from members of the Golden Panthers Club and other interested persons.  The principle is commingled with the permanent endowment fund of Ferrum College and is invested according to the policies of the Board of Trustees.

Any Ferrum College student may apply for a scholarship award and priority is given to children of Ferrum Alumni who have demonstrated academic ability and intend to pursue a Christian vocation.

Support the Golden Panther Endowed Scholarship with an online gift!

It is the goal of the members of the Beckham Society to create educational opportunities for current and future Ferrum College students. The Society recognizes alumni and friends who have made Ferrum College a beneficiary of a deferred gift through their wills, trusts, life insurance policies, annuities, or other endowment gift arrangements.
