College life is a time of exciting intellectual and social growth. Students consider new ideas, discover new interests, and explore ever-broadening horizons. College can also be a time of spiritual exploration and maturity. Ferrum College Spiritual Life offers students a chance to examine their faith, to assess what is most important, and to forge a system of values that will sustain them through their adult years.

Growing out of its history of service and its affiliation with the United Methodist Church, Ferrum College is committed to creating an environment that encourages spiritual growth and development. As a result, Ferrum College offers a number of opportunities for students to celebrate life, faith, and explore God’s intention for human living.

Ferrum College Spiritual Life is a place for you to:

PERK (Panther Encouragement Rock)

Spiritual Life is creating PERKs which are hidden all across campus. What do you do if you find a PERK?

  • Take a selfie with your PERK and send it to #fcperks on Twitter and Instagram
  • Bring your PERK to the Spiritual Life office and have your name entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card. Winner will be announced before Fall Break. There will be one $50 gift card for students and one $50 gift card for employees
  • Keep the PERK or hide it again for someone else to find

Let’s keep Panther Encouragement going this semester!

Congratulations to Hilda Smith, housekeeping and to Jason Akers, Freshman on winning PERK VISA gift cards. Drawing was October 9. If you didn’t win, don’t give up.

    “This is a very important practice. Live your daily life in away that you never lose yourself. When you are carried away with your worries, fears, cravings, anger, and desire, you run away from yourself and you lose yourself. The practice is always to go back to oneself.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
