A Successful "Milk & Cookies with Santa" Event!

by Amanda R., Panther Blogger

The only thing standing between the students and Christmas break are finals!  I want to wish the best of luck to everyone!

While students get caught up in the stress of finals, they can forget to keep their holiday cheer.  On December 9th in the Panther's Den, the Physical Activities Club held the "Milk and Cookies with Santa" event!  This event included coloring pictures, creating reindeer crafts, milk and cookies, and even a photo opportunity with Santa! 

We had great support from fellow students and faculty, who even brought their own children in for the event!  With the great turnout, we raised $176.00 and two huge boxes of donated toys for the Child Advocacy Center.  Events like this really open your heart for the families in need at this time of the year. I love being involved in events like this on campus!

On behalf of the Panther Blog Team, softball team, and Physical Activities Club, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday!  Can't wait to be back in January!

Never Underestimate the Value of Community Involvement!

by Caleb T., Panther Blogger

I'm a huge believer that community involvement makes your college experience so much better.  Ferrum faculty and staff help students find great opportunities to get involved with the welcoming local community, and it's worth it!  Check out my video about ways that I've been involved in the local community of Ferrum and the surrounding areas during my time at Ferrum College.
