Alumni and Family Programs

Welcome to Alumni and Family Programs!

Group of Ferrum College Alumni at TailgateAlumni House on Ferrum Mountain RoadAlumni play a very important role in our Ferrum family. As an alum there are many ways to give back to your alma mater: participate by sharing the good news about Ferrum College with others, submitting your own #MyFerrum story, attending events, working with Career Services or Admission or even hosting and alumni get-together in your area. And when you’re in town, don’t forget to stop by the new Alumni House on Ferrum Mountain Road!

We have many ways to stay in touch with your classmates: contact our office or join our Ferrum College Alumni Group on Facebook.

We know as alumni you still live our “Not Self But Others” motto and another important aspect of “giving back” is to support the College with an annual gift to the Ferrum Fund. With your support you give current and future students the same opportunity to be successful that you had! So make your gift today!

Welcome from our Alumni President!

Female Alumnae during the Ferrum College Homecoming Tailgate

As your Alumni Board of Directors President, I want to welcome you to the Alumni Association. This association is made up of your classmates and friends who want to help strengthen our ties with Ferrum College and each other. Please let me or any of our board members know any ideas or suggestions you may have on how we can better serve you.

One of my goals is to help increase our alumni giving percentage. If you think back to your times at Ferrum, you will realize that it took not only your tuition to make those happen but also the gifts from alumni and friends of Ferrum. Each donor wanted to make a difference and I am challenging each of you to also make a difference in a deserving student's life and give them a chance at the same opportunities we had. We don't realize how important the alumni giving percentage is in the eyes of other donors and businesses that would want to invest in Ferrum College. If the alumni choose not to support Ferrum, then why would others want to make gifts? The size of the gift doesn't matter when looking at the alumni giving percentage, it's the fact you made a gift.

Lastly, the Alumni Board of Directors is tasked with selecting worthy candidates for the Distinguished Alumni Award that is given out annually at Homecoming. The criteria for selection can be found on our website. Please review this page and send us eligible candidates who are worthy of receiving this award. I look forward to seeing many of you at chapter events and other gatherings of Ferrum Alumni!
