Fitness Center

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Hello Ferrum College Family and welcome back students, faculty and staff! We are excited to move into our Fall schedule at the Fitness Center! We have a few new procedures this year that we want to bring to your attention.

If you plan to use the Fitness Center – and we hope you do – you need to complete the Liability Waiver that will remain in place for the year. The MOST EFFECIENT way to complete this is to sign into your Panther Portal – click on MY LINKS – and Fitness Center Waiver – Scroll through and click submit at the bottom. You will receive an email verification and we will also be notified that this is complete and on file. That’s it!

Please scan your Ferrum ID at the front desk upon arrival each visit.

Ferrum College is committed to supporting a healthy, vibrant, productive community. We all are part of that community. Be your best this year! STAY STRONG, STAY FIT, STAY WELL!

In Fitness,

Dr. Karen Carpenter
General Manager
