4 College Student

Overall Experience: I had some really great professors. They try to help you succeed in the courses, though I have had some hard courses and not so great professors. They also have other student resources to help you succeed in class.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: The school tries to give student opportunities to meet with their proffession and help get them ready for their careers.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: They really try to keep the student body safe. They put phones for student access in emergencies.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: It was a decent sized dorm room. The resident advisors really tried to get you involved and meet others in the dorm and be social. My year was really memorable because of the dorm life.

4 College Student

Greek Life: The Greek life community really tries to be involved with non greek life. They also try to bring attention and fundraising to their charities/philanthropies.

4 College Student

Athletics: They really try to get the athletics program involved with the rest of the campus. They have the football players help move other students in.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It is a smaller college but still has a big feel to it. They try to make sure you are not lost in the crowd and get involved. They want to see you succeed.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life students are just like non-greek life students

3 College Junior

Athletics: Everyone loves the hockey team!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The hockey atmosphere is great!

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: sometimes being around others that are drinking and doing drugs and wants you to drink or do drugs causes you to give in to pure pressure and do it too. And the policy for that is if you get caught it can mess up your financial aid ad you can get in a lot of trouble.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Professors are very helpful. If you let them know a head of time that you might be a little late on an assignment or tat you're struggling with something they will help you and even work with you on the side. I really like the professors I've had, despite of how big the class is, the still made sure they were able help anyone who needed or wanted help. I even had a professor when I was behind that gave me an extra push to let me know that I can do it and get a good grade in the class.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Coming from Ferris State I've heard that is it is more easily to get into internships and having job when you come from here because Ferris has the "Best Programs." They will actually help you get an internship either during school, on campus or either back at home. They also have places where you can work like you're in your major like Campus Safety some are students that watch to make sure you're protected and give you tickets for parking in the wrong spots as a normal cop would. Also thing like dentistry they let students work to help them know how to be a dentist and this is really helpful and good for a person to train, get a good job and internship.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The Campus police patrols all night and day to make sure nothing happens and they have a button you can press if you're feeling unsafe and the campus police will make sure you get back safely. Also if you get raped they will help you get through it and the school pays for your tuition.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I think they should have more housing ad that the dorms should be bigger. But overall it's not that bad when you have your own room. I don't believe you should have to pay extra to not have a roommate because sometimes roommates are what cause a bad college experience and the person might not can take it ad drop out. But the good thing is when you're a sophomore or older, it won't costs extra you can just have your own room if you'd like.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: They are pretty nice and helpful sometimes with the community. But they aren't always doing the best things as role models to the community Most get i trouble for throwing parties and letting underage people drink at them. But overall they are pretty involved in helping the campus and helping the community.

4 College Junior

Athletics: During sports especially with football, basketball, volleyball and hockey they have a lot of fan support because they have a good team performance. We all have the same workout facility but we use it at different times.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like it. It's fun to party but it's also fun to look at your grades and realize how intelligent you are when you can do both party and school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My average class size was about 30-40 students. That wasn't too bad because the professors could still identify you and call you by name (if they want to, some professors didn't bother learning your name). The classes themselves ranged in difficulty, it is very important to read the syllabus before starting the class so you know what to expect for difficulty.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are job fairs and internships fairs occuring on campus a couple times a year. The career center is also a good investment and you should definitely visit them for assistance.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its not worth the hassle. I would encourage living in an apartment. The walk to classes in the winter are impossible because they don't ice or remove the snow as often as they should. And when they do its in the middle of the night right underneath your window.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Theres really not much to say about Greek life here. I have a friend whose in a sorority and it takes up all her time and she loves it. You don't really hear much about the greek scene unless you go to a frat party.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are Ferris are a big deal. We are a D2 school for all sports except for hockey which is D1. The fan support is unbelievable especially for big games. I always felt at home at those games surrounded by other fans. If you don't go to their hockey games, why are you even coming here?

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At the beginning of the year, Ferris holds several events to help you get out and meet new people. After the first month or so then the events die down and there isn't much to do on campus. The only things to really do is go to sporting events. The party scene here isn't anything to brag about except for Homecoming, Halloween, and Ferris Fest. Also, Ferris is very much a suitcase college, meaning that ALOT of people go home for the weekend. Honestly it just feels empty on campus on the weekends.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I was charged $200.00 for not vacuuming 30 sq. feet of carpet---in a apartment slated for demolition!!!

The manager in charge is a real bitch.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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).
