The Honors Program at Ferris - I just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of Ferris and the Honors Program. I am about to finish my first year in graduate school at Western Michigan University, and Ferris has prepared me well for this next step... As a transfer student, I was only there for two years, but it has had a lasting impact. I will always be proud to call myself a Bulldog. - Leah, '12
