Ferrum Foundations
Sunday, August 16th - Friday, August 21st

Get an early start on your academic success by participating in Ferrum College’s Ferrum Foundations program. Join us for a week-long experience – Sunday, August 16th through Friday, August 21st – designed to help you prepare for the academic, leadership, and campus life opportunities that await at Ferrum.

During Ferrum Foundations, you will work closely with Ferrum faculty members, academic coaches, and peer mentors to enhance your academic skills, connect with other first-year students, and have the opportunity to earn one academic credit for your activity course requirement.

“I was lucky enough to be a part of the Foundations program at Ferrum College, both as a participant and as a mentor.  I met some of my best friends through the Foundations program who have been able to help me in both the academic world and the social world.”  Chelsea Zizzi (Foundations participant, ’18 and Per Mentor, ’19)
