Get Involved and Make the Difference!!!
College is about expanding one’s horizons-both in and out of the classroom. One of the most fulfilling ways to experience college life is to participate in Student Government, campus committees, intercollegiate athletics, or in one of the many clubs and organizations offered. All students are urged to get involved and make the most of the opportunities already here.
Mission Statement of the College
Ferrum College is a liberal arts institution founded on Christian principles and related to the United Methodist Church. It is our mission to educate students in the disciplines of higher learning and to help them be thoughtful and perceptive, to be articulate and professionally capable, and to be caring and concerned citizens of their community, nation, and world. We therefore commit ourselves to developing the whole student, both in openness to a wide range of intellectual discovery, and in the physical, spiritual, and social aspects of life.
Our campus environment supports service to others and the development of a personal code of values. Toward these ends, we expect all members of the campus community to treat each other with compassion, to respect each other's diverse qualities and backgrounds, and to support each other in the common pursuit of insight and discovery. In all these endeavors, we encourage students, faculty, and staff to appreciate excellence and to dedicate themselves to achieving it.
