    Hi, my name is Cody Gibson but everyone on campus calls me “CG”. I’m currently a junior here. My major is Mass Media and Communications. I’m from Salem, VA which is about an hour away from here, so Ferrum feels like a second home. I play football here. I play Free Safety, wearing number 20. The job I want to pursue after college is a game day announcer or have a podcast that either talks about football or something else that interests me. Some of the things I like to do are working out, being outside, watching football, and chill on the weekends.
