Local Atmosphere: It so a normal town. you can find stuff to do when you want to.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Academics are hard and leave little time for social life.

1 College Junior

Majors: It takes a long time to get into the program and you can only apply for the program once a year. The also take a person with the most Ferris credits before they take anyone else do if you transferred after a two year college you're screwed like me.

3 College Junior

Majors: I'm not in the program so I haven't been able to take any classes for what I want to go into.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It cost way too much unless you live with like 5 other people. Then you have to make your own food. You also get the worst parking on campus.

Greek Life: I don't care about this.

Campus Housing: I wish there were unisex dorms it would make me feel a lot more comfortable.

Athletics: Its not in my agenda to go to sports events.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: It isn't the safest school to attend. It also cost extra money out side of personal medical coverage even if your insurance pays for it there is a 45 dollar fee just for using the Ferris health facility.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: I had all my finances paid for by August 3rd, but on August 13th they added more onto my bill. All bills are required to be paid on the 14th. I am out of work and have no way to come up with more money for school. I based all my finances for the entire year on the original total they gave me. They make in near to impossible for people with low paying jobs. My mother called the finance office and they said the charges were because I am an upper class-men and not a lower class-men. They charge more the closer you are to graduation which makes no sense because you have more debt from the first couple years of school. I had my transcript sent in May and it should have been looked at before August 13 to show I was an upper class-men they should not be able to change the cost of school more than a month before. I now have to try to see if i can win any last minute scholarships to pay the charges that were added on after I paid my original bill.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Lauren Moore

According to students, if they were given the option to go to this school again, 69% of students would choose Ferris! The same amount of students surveyed said that they like most everything about the school and would only change a few things. Overall, students find that there are many great people to meet, and it's a good academic college. Though some stress the lack of entertainment and “city” things to do, if a person is content with small-town life, then this would be the best place.

The people and the faculty make Ferris a great experience. The faculty and staff are pretty helpful and understanding if a student needs extra help or is having problems with something. The school and faculty seem to care about the students and take an interest in students getting the help and the experiences they should. As long as the student puts in a decent amount of effort in their classes, faculty will be more apt to help.

Another great factor about the school is that class sizes are small, and there is more individualized attention for each student. Since the community is small, there are not too many things to do, but there are enough! There are several bars, a bowling alley, a movie theater, and tons of parties and get-togethers throughout the week. Since people seem to be so friendly on and around campus, it is easy to make friends and have something to do and someone to do it with! While in school, though education is the main focus, it is important to have some balance in life and join other groups and activities (which there are many to pick from).
