Administration: There may be times when a teacher will scold you for walking into class just a few minutes late, and every police officer is strict about parking and will give you another ticket even if you have already gotten one in that 24 hour period

Scholarships: I did not receive any scholarships in the past school year and am struggling to even pay for this summer's tuition, because financial aid said they could not help me this summer with a student loan.

Campus Food: I love being able to walk out my door, stroll for about 2-3 minutes and be at the Rock. It's such an ease to get to and the food there is pretty good, while the cleanliness is upkept.

Campus Housing: This year is my third year living in the dorms here at Ferris State University, and although the halls aren't clean as can be sometimes with disrespectful people leaving things in the hallway, it is very well upkept and I enjoy thoroughly living on campus.

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my stay in the dorms at Ferris. the RAs were great and i might some really nice people.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I like it because it is much cheaper than living on campus, however this also reduces opportunities for socialization and extra exercise because you are driving instead of walking everywhere.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: This is a small town, there are options, yet many of them are fast food. Overall I would say that they are okay, yet it would be nice to have more.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I think it can have a positive impact on students, you can meet more people, yet if you drink it can harm you academically. There aren't many other options to do on the weekends besides go out. It is a small town and campus with not a ton of extra things to do.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: They are very strict in the dorms.

Scholarships: I wish I had more or a walk through of how to first do it as an incoming freshman.

Campus Food: The food is great, however for a poor college student the price is not. I got a meal plan my first two years, yet was not able to afford it in later years. I love that the kitchen employs students and the staff is usually friendly. I am also gluten intolerant so I am thankful that the Rock has options.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: There are not a lot of options for students to live on campus. There are dorms and two types of apartment styles. I lived in the dorms, the social life was great, yet it was small and very costly. I also lived in an on campus apartment, these were bigger, yet there was no socialization that went on in the building and there weren't activities for residents to go to.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The business school is okay -- there are definitely better ones in the state.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The business college is okay - the workload is generally light and the facilities are a little outdate. Internship programs are pretty easy to come by and the professors are usually knowledgable about their field.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Ferris is known for it's many unique programs such as pharmacy, optometry, nursing, dental hygiene, engineering, music industry management, professional golf/tennis management, hospitality, etc. The list is endless. We are ranked top in the country for a variety of majors.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The on campus community is great. The new university center is a huge attraction and FLITE is a great place to study.

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).
