Alumni Chapters


Alumni Chapters are established to provide graduates from Ferrum College with opportunities for social activities along with professional and personal networking. In determining where to establish a Chapter, the level of interest and the number of alumni who can organize, manage and support Association activities are considered.

Official Chapters are organized by region and according to zip codes. All alumni residing within a specific Chapter region are considered to be members of the Association and receive communications regarding events and campus news.

We identify the following Alumni Chapters located in our most alumni-populated areas within Virginia:

  • Richmond
  • Roanoke Valley
  • Shenandoah Valley
  • Southside
  • Tidewater
  • Washington, D.C.



Organized activities are sometimes held in areas without formal alumni chapters. These are referred to as Provisional Chapters and are located in areas where there are sufficient numbers of alumni to organize and manage activities on a regular but less frequent schedule. Provisional Chapters currently include:

  • Charlottesville
  • Fredericksburg
  • Lynchburg
  • Patrick County

Ferrum 100: Alumni Profiles

Alumni Spotlight: Charlotte Moran '11 Mark Roberts
I majored in Russian and minored in Criminal Justice in May 2011. I am originally from Ballston Spa, New York.

While I was at Ferrum I was the vice president of the Russian club and worked with theater productions doing the lights for the shows directed by Professor Wayne Bowman. During the summer of 2010 I worked at a summer camp in Ukraine near the Black Sea. I finished all necessary classes and credits to be able to finish school a semester early in December. After graduation in May, I started working as a youth activities counselor for Disney Cruise Line aboard the Disney Dream from 2011 until 2013. While aboard the Disney Dream, I was offered a job with Disney English. Disney English is a English as a foreign language learning company in China. I teach English to children ages 3-11 in an immersive environment.
The best thing about Ferrum College is the teachers. Professor Wayne Bowman and Dr. Sasha Saari taught me so much both in class and out of class. I wouldn't be the person I am today without them.
I am proud of Ferrum College because it gave me the opportunities to learn new things. If I had not gone to Ferrum I might have never studied Russian. Without studying Russian I would never have done all of the traveling that I have done since leaving Ferrum College.
