Office of Student Life

Our goal in the Office of Student Life is to help students be successful, reach their full potential, and encourage them to learn valuable life skills through their participation inside and outside of their classrooms. As mentors and advisors, our staff seeks to serve as your campus advocate and provide assistance with managing a crisis, understanding campus policies and procedures, and assisting you in locating the appropriate university resource.

Welcome letter from Dean of Students

Nicole Lenez

Ferrum Family,

It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as your Dean of Students and Title IX Coordinator at Ferrum College. Our goal in the Office of Student Life is to help students be successful, reach their full potential, and encourage them to learn valuable life skills through their participation inside and outside of their classrooms. As mentors and advisors, our staff seeks to serve as your campus advocate and provide assistance with managing a crisis, understanding campus policies and procedures, and assisting you in locating the appropriate university resource.

As you may know, the Office of Student Life houses residence life, housing, title ix, and student accountability (formerly known as judicial). We strive to provide each student with opportunities in individual development through quality services and programs focused on your needs. These needs include emotional, social, physical, cultural, and intellectual.

Students, faculty, staff, and families uncertain where to turn may reach out and work with our staff who possess the knowledge and skills to solve problems, and a great understanding of the resources available both on and off campus. Our staff is also available to talk with parents about university policies, practices, resources and the student experience.

I see myself as a steward of your experience, and I would love to hear from you– what you like about your experience, what you would like to change, and how we in the Office of Student Life can best support you in your efforts to make Ferrum the community you want it to be.

Go Panthers!!

Nicole Lenez
Dean of Students & Title IX Coordinator
