Alumni and Family Programs


Alumni play a very important role in the Ferrum family. Ferrum College has helped many successful graduates become professionally capable, concerned citizens of their communities. You are among 14,000+ men and women located in every one of the United States and in more than 20 countries around the world!

We encourage you to stay involved with your alma mater. You can participate by sharing the good news about Ferrum with others, attending events, working with Career Services or Admissions or even hosting an alumni get-together in your area. If you would like to continue being a part of Ferrum’s mission in any of these choices, contact the Alumni Office at 540-365-4216, alumni@ferrum.edu or 1-877-FERRUM1.

alumniAn 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 opportunity to be successful. You may not be aware that tuition at Ferrum covers only about half the cost to educate each student.

The Ferrum Fund makes up a portion of the difference and helps students attain their dreams of earning a college degree. We urge you to consider giving to the Ferrum Fund at whatever level you feel comfortable. Even a $5 gift helps to raise the alumni participation rate and boost Ferrum’s reputation.

This is your Alumni Association. Please feel free to contact the Alumni Office at any time. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with Ferrum alumni and I am proud to be a Panther for Life! We welcome all comments and suggestions and are happy to assist you in any way possible!

Ferrum 100: Alumni Profiles

Alumni Spotlight: Mark Roberts, '88Mark Roberts
Award-Winning Baseball Field

Athletic Turf and Field Manager Mark Roberts has made Steward history—the School has won Field of the Year in the school/parks and recreation category from the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) for the baseball field. This prestigious award is a first of its kind for Steward, and it is the result of hard work in maintaining the field. Mr. Roberts will fly to San Antonio in January to accept the award on the School’s behalf, and there will be an article about Steward in an upcoming issue of Sports Turf magazine.

Mr. Roberts said that this award “should bring a fair amount of attention to Steward, and that’s why I do it.” As part of the baseball program, he trains the players to maintain the field, giving each student a regular job—such as packing the mound or taking care of home plate—following all practices and games. As a result, he says, “We get games in when others don’t…because our field can be put back to game condition so readily."

“My goal is for these kids to get as close to a college or professional field as they will find,” Mr. Roberts says. After a 15-year career spent in the athletic fields business in one aspect or another, he knows his turf.
