Crazy Weather at Ferrum!

by Dannica B., Panther Blogger

The weather here at Ferrum College is ridiculous, but it wouldn't be Ferrum without it!  One day, it could be 64 degrees, sunny, and people will be walking around in shorts and a t-shirt.  Then the next day, it's snowing, below freezing and everyone looks like they're wearing every piece of clothing item they own.  I promise I'm not exaggerating!  Just last week, we had an instance where it was snowing one day, and two days later, I walked outside and the sun was beaming down on me. 

My best advice is to just be prepared!  If you have any evening classes or want a hot pepperoni pizza late at night, just take a jacket because temperatures tend to drop tremendously when it hits around 8 p.m.  Also, if it does snow, don't be surprised if classes don't get canceled.  Sometimes your classes may be canceled if your professors live further away from campus and can't get to class, but the college rarely cancels classes.  We often just get a compressed schedule, which is awesome because not only do we get to sleep in, but classes are shorter too, which means more time for SNOWBALL FIGHTS! 

Just remember, if you live off campus and simply can't make it to class, just email your professors and they will be more than willing to work with you. Also, if you do have a car on campus and it's snowing, don't drive!  You've probably already been told a million times not to drive in the snow unless you have four-wheel drive, but a few of my friends got into small fender benders because they wanted to drive in the snow. I promise you, it's really not worth it. Long story short, snow is fun and comes with lots of exciting activities to do, but just please be safe and stay warm!
