What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus and class size is what attracted me to the school. It is the only school that I applied to and cannot wait to start. Was accepted before my senior year started this fall. I have already accepted and will be starting in the Fall of 2020.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris State University was the first place to feel like home. When I arrived, they welcomed me. When I struggled they offered me a way to better myself. But the most important thing the school staff did for me was let me be my own person and grow in an environment free from judgment. For the first time in my life, I feel that I am ready to fail, with the expectation that I will pick myself up and succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris has a beautiful campus and many employees who are very willing to help students. The biggest downside of Ferris is that it is located in a small town that offers little opportunity. Ferris has a wide range of career opportunities and is affordable as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris State University is a great college for those who want to take up a career in medicine, law enforcement, or in the arts. The professors are very down to earth and help the students in any way that they can. The campus is generally well kept, but in the winter it can be hard to walk to class. Some of the dorms are older, and therefore have problems that come with older buildings - with leaking windows being an example.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Ferris! It is definitely different from high school but as long as you focus on your studies and do as much extra credit possible it’s fairly similar to high school. I love that you can create your own schedule, you can have breaks in between classes. There are many stores walking distance you could also ride the bus to Walmart and such!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I actually go to Kendall College of Art and Design which is ran out of Ferris technically. It's such a small school there are only three buildings, one of them a gallery. There is no on-campus housing and no cafeteria. You have to find your own place to live and living near campus in downtown Grand Rapids for an affordable price is nearly impossible. Good luck living downtown with no financial help. I think what saves KCAD are academics. Most of the teachers are really great and most studio classes in a specific major are really professional and you learn a lot. I don't regret coming here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school with a lot of student and faculty involvement, but they could do better in rebuilding housing and make more parking lots. Also it would be nice if we didn't have to pay for parking after just paying tuition. Sometimes it seems as if the school cares more about the football team than the students when it comes to what they spend their money on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A bit more pricey than some other universities, but worth the additional cost. On campus housing is clean, the food is top notch, and the professors are pretty easy to get in touch with. My one complaint would be that there is often very little correlation between the level of your class and the actual difficulty of the class, having more to do with whoever the professor is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion about Ferris is that it is a great school to attend. There are medium size classes where everyone can learn. The campus actually listens to the students as of what we want.
