Ferrum is excluded from the world. No one knows where the tuition money goes to. The money def. does not go to sports teams or the food. The food is terrible and the only places you can go to that are local are Subway, which is located on the campus,Dairy Queen, and the Black and Gold Grill, (which is being switched to a Mexican thing), The students that work at the Subway and Black and Gold Grill are usually lousy at making sandwiches and are only interested in socializing.
The staff are lazy and have no bussiness working with young adults. The classes are bigger than promised, which was 1:13 which it is really 1:30.

The admissions staff let just about anyone one, which means lazy people who were in high school come to college and expect to do nothing just like they did in high school. Plus, there are too many people on campus and not enough facilities to hold them. Apartments that were single became double and double apartments became triple.
In comparison to other colleges I have never seen so many 5th year seniors who got snatched in staying an extra year. The academic programs and degree plans are a joke and are designed for students to get sucked into staying for a fifth year.

There is nothing to do around campus. I was involved I played a sport and was involved with a club but yet, I spent a lot of time sitting in my dorm watching the ridiculous commercials. The wireless internet is terrible and never works when you need to send something to a professor or recieve something important.
If you get accepted to another school please go to that school.
