Get an early start on your academic success by participating in Ferrum College’s Ferrum Foundations program. Join us on August 17 and 18 for an experience 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 discover the resources for success that await you at Ferrum College.

“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 Peer Mentor, ’19)

The fee for the Ferrum Foundations experience is $145, which includes room & board and activity fees for the program.
