Small Class Size

With a 16-to-1 student/teacher ratio (one of the best in Michigan), your student's professors will know your son or daughter by name. Ferris students say they like the high school class size in a college setting, where they can step outside the small classroom into a bigger world. "I can walk across campus and have people know me by name, yet not run out of new people to meet," said a current FSU student.

Since Ferris is student centered, you'll rarely find any graduate assistants teaching your student here. Our classes are taught by professors who have both scholarly knowledge and real-world experience in the subjects they are teaching, giving them an edge in preparing students for the professional licensing and certifications required in many of our programs. With a 16-to-1 student/teacher ratio, your teen's professors will know your son or daughter by name. Student-to-professor personal interaction offers mentoring, advice and employment connections for your student.

Ferris cares that your son or daughter has good things to do outside of class -- that's why we offer approximately 200 recognized student organizations. Students take part in politics, publications (including the college newspaper), cultural and entertainment events, religious groups, theater, debate, vocal groups, softball, soccer, football, sororities, fraternities, student chapters of professional organizations, service organizations and dozens more.
