4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are here to ensure our success as students and work with students if help is needed. As an athlete missing class for games was a big hassle but the professors were always happy to work with us to make sure we had all the material we needed and answered any of our questions as best as they could. There are so many different classes available that there is no way to not find a class to be enrolled in. The class sizes range from big lecture halls to small 10 student classes.

Health & Safety: I have never been afraid to walk across campus at any time of the day or night. There are not a lot of places where people can hide to attack others or to follow them without being seen, it is a very open campus with plenty of street lamps along the sidewalks. DPS is constantly patrolling campus and gives a feeling of security.

Athletics: It depends on what sports. Hockey and Football are very big here and get most of the attention, but as a soccer player here I know that many of the players from all of the sports here try to attend each others games to support one another regardless of popularity among the other students. It shows team spirit and support and it gets their fans to come to other sporting events as well.

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).
