Happy New (school) Year at Ferrum College.
Ferrum College kicked off the new school year with the annual opening conference
this morning in the Blue Ridge Mountain Room. President Dr. Jennifer Braaten welcomed
the faculty and staff with an overview of the school's mission -- by touching on some
of the College's Methodist heritage and reminding the gathering of the College motto,
Not Self, But Others. Dr. Braaten also noted that the College is now "100 years strong," as the school
enters its centennial year in 2013. In addition, faculty heard the latest on new building
projects, new academic initiatives and the latest enrollment estimates, which are
expected to come in once again at 1500 students.
