Special Statement: Ferrum College to Allow Early Move-in for Students in Path of Hurricane Irene


Welcome to Ferrum/Weather Travel Update

While we do not anticipate that the Ferrum area will be significantly impacted by Hurricane Irene, students and families are advised to carefully consider forecasts of likely impacts for their home areas and travel routes.  All new students are scheduled to arrive on Thursday, August 25, and Friday, August 26. 

There are no plans to alter this schedule at this time.

In anticipation of the travel needs of returning students who were scheduled to arrive to campus on Sunday, August 28,  and who are  from areas that are likely to be significantly impacted by Hurricane Irene, residence halls will be open for check-in on Saturday, August 27, 9:00 – 12:00 noon and 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Students from areas not impacted by the storm are asked to respect the needs of fellow students whose homes and travel routes are at risk by waiting to return as scheduled on Sunday.  Students whose homes or travel routes are likely to be significantly impacted by hurricane Irene are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students, Jason Jones at jajones@ferrum.edu, as soon as possible to make specific arrangements to arrive on Saturday.  Mr. Jones will email you back with move-in information.
