Administration: As long as you obey the rules/laws there is no problem. I don't feel there is an over "strictness" at Ferris.

Local Area: It's a small area with not much to do during the winter. But during the summer there is lots to do. The city isnt too big and it isnt too small.

Overall Experience: My favorite experience is living in the residence halls. The people employed are awesome, welcoming and encouraging. They help you progress through college and create opportunities for yourself.

Overall Experience: We have a center for career services and they are very helpful in how to dress, resumes and any other questions to be asked. The employers recruiting are very welcoming and postings are made for possible internships.

Health & Safety: There are emergency phones all over campus and people are able to call for a campus escort. There is always a foot patrol at night. Residence Life does a good job of spread awareness about it and there is a counseling center for support.

Athletics: No matter what the sport is, ferris students are always out to make the best of the season. Hockey is our number one and we go crazy when cheering the team on.

Greek Life: I was in a fraternity and since it was a criminal justice fraternity it was very selective. i had to leave due to money constraints but it is the best group of people I have met. The process to get in was tough but well worth it. Since it's a co-ed fraternity there isnt any housing for it. those who dont make it try again because they like it so much. There is always a stigma of every fraternity partying from teh non greeks.

Off-Campus Housing: It's not the life for me especially when I can get free room and board for being a resident advisor. To me its so much easier to have the money come right out of you financial aid account instead of worrying about monthly bills.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many places and most of them are either fast food and a few big name restaurants. The best places to eat are the ones original to the area.

5 College Junior

Administration: The area with the most strictness most often is campus parking.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I dont party but from what I have heard from other people the options I choose above are the places to go.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very helpful with anything that a person may need help with. I havent had any problems, they are very accomodating.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: While they have varieties it doesnt seem to me that the food is made healthy

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus has provided me with so many opportunities. I have created friendships, and even had jobs because of living on campus. It's easier to focus when living in an academic atmosphere. The residence halls provide many jobs for students and chances to be involved in the university community.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartment complexes near campus that are always looking for students. The apartments are fairly close to campus and offer many different ways of paying for rent. Ferris State sometimes has houses for rent posted near FLITE.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off-campus dining options. There are many fast food restaurants near campus. For the students without cars, this must be very convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is only strict when you're breaking the law or doing something that you shouldn't be doing. They are very lenient and understand that you are here to have fun. However, you are also here to be a student. Being a student needs to be your first priority.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Ferris State is a college campus and obviously parties happen. Typically, the parties happen Fridays and Saturdays.

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).
