At Ferris, the only well-respected sports program is hockey. At almost every game, there is a packed student section, and the community comes to pack the arena, as well. The students’ presence can be felt around the arena when they chant and cheer on the hockey team. The other sporting events at Ferris are not attended by that many students. There has been an increased presence at the basketball games following a better season by the teams. But if there is a lack of students at these games, the atmosphere is still energetic, being fueled mostly by the University pep band.
At the basketball games as well as the hockey games, there is a section that is referred to as the "Dawg Pound," which is where the students are encouraged to sit and cheer on the team. Hockey games cost the students $6 to attend, and the basketball games and any other sports offered are free to students. For the limited budget that Ferris has, the athletic facilities on campus are accessible and clean. The facilities are well maintained and are a pleasant place to enjoy the sports. There is also an intramural and club sports scene that is somewhat important to the students. Intramurals that are offered include dodgeball, volleyball, broomball, basketball, and hockey. There is also a myriad of club teams including volleyball, rugby, table tennis, baseball, hockey, dance teams, and many more.
