Student Athlete Profiles

“Being here at Ferrum has given me the opportunity to become a better athlete, student, and person. I couldn’t have asked for a better college experience. “Ferrum was a great fit for me because it is a small campus and everyone knows everyone. All of my professors know me and I can get extra help if I need it. I also am part of a family here on campus with a group of girls who are more than just my teammates — they are my best friends. I have grown as an athlete and as a person on this campus, and it is a part of me now.”

“I knew that Ferrum was the place for me because it was close to home and a great fit for me with the basketball program.

My professors challenged and helped me every step of the way. The business professors are a real asset to the entire college.”
