Come and See What We're All About!
The best way to learn about Ferris State is to visit our campus. Students tell us there is no substitute for seeing first-hand what Ferris has to offer.
Below are our types of visits available:
Ferris Daily Visits- admissions presentation, campus tour, lunch.
Ferris Midafternoon Visits- admissions presentation, campus tour, meal voucher.
Dawg Days- Saturday visit to meet with colleges/departments, admissions presentation, financial aid presentation, student panel, campus tour, and lunch. (registration for our April 7 and 21 events will begin in February)
Admitted Student Open House- Saturday visit for accepted students to meet with colleges for presentations and/or facility tours, speak with departments, attend optional presentations, and learn more about life as a bulldog for Fall 2018. Optional campus tour available.
Crimson & Gold Days- This an opportunity for newly admitted students to experience Ferris firsthand! You will be matched with a current student host for the day to shadow a class, eat lunch at one of our dining facilities, and get a glimpse of what next year at Ferris could be like for you. We encourage your parents to explore Big Rapids while you are on your visit.
