Special Statement: Ferrum College to Allow Early Move-in for Students in Path of Hurricane
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 email@example.com, as soon as possible to make specific arrangements to arrive on Saturday. Mr. Jones
will email you back with move-in information.
Please check the Ferrum College website for further updates.
