This school is absolutly awful. When I first came down to visit the campus I thought it was a very nice looking school with people that got along and everything looked good, until I started attending the school. The other people that go here are not what you would expect at all. Everynight is a party in like the parking lot jsut standing around and being loud. Since Ive been here there has been fights practically everyother weekend even officers assulted. The RA's had to strictly moniter the porches, stoops, and lobbies due all the harassment complaints (you can't even walk into your dorm with being harassed some way or another). Granted there are a few good people on campus but still it will take you a bit to find throughout all the arrogance and tough guy roles. Also the food is awful for about the first month you spend here you will get real comrtable with a bathroom because that will just run right through you and keep running. One plus I can think of is the small classes and the one on one attention that you will recieve but thats about it. Throughout all of these negative events I have found that this school is just draining and it is not a college expirence worth having for anyone. Take my word don't EVER come here
responseI hear, from your comments and others, that Ferrum is a decent enough party school. But too many people wind up there because they didn't work hard enough to get into a more serious university- and most any university has a party scene going on, so it's not like you have to go to Ferrum to get that.
