What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus and the all around atmosphere of the school. The programs are amazing with professors who want to better each student. There is tons of clubs and sports for everyone to be involved in. On weekends everyone is outside in the quads, studying or just hanging out. I love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris is a good school. I enjoy myself while I'm there, and the campus is a very nice size. It's not very close to the downtown Big Rapids area and I wish that there was a shuttle that could take me there, if only on the weekends. The food at Ferris is good, which is very important to me, and the library is in a sensible location given the overall hub of campus, even if the building is farther away from my dorm than I, personally, like.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love FSU. I come from a small town where I only graduated with 62 people in my class and I have felt that Ferris offers enough to make me feel like I am exposed to many other cultures but also not overwhelmed with a huge melting pot. I have gotten a great education thus far and my on campus jobs have given me great opportunities to further educate and develop my leadership skills. I also am a part of a sorority, something I never thought I would do and I have made so many amazing connections and have actually lined 2 internships up with the help of our alumnae.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris State University has an excellent Mechanical Engineering Program, a lot of applied theory. Also, the professors are helpful and are very, very strict in regards to deadlines, this aspect is great as it prepares students for the real world. The housing is okay, too. There are a lot of quiet places to study and complete assignments or projects. Also, I've been dual enrolled at Ferris during my junior year of high school and was given the opportunity to earn college credit at completely no cost to me. I also was a member of the Promesa Summer Success Program during this past summer and it allowed me to earn more free college credit!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris State University is a very great school. It most definitely is a party school, but usually only towards the end of the week. Ferris State is really what you make it. If you go out a lot, you will find yourself struggling faster than your average relaxed person who is going out because their work is all done for the week/weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a high school student in the Big Rapids area, who is duel enrolled at Ferris. My father has been an employee at Ferris for a total of 30 years, and I've lived in Big Rapids all my life. My initial impression of Ferris, when I was much younger, was a positive one, and one of astonishment. I thought Ferris was the absolute best! That was until I grew up and realized Ferris was another run-of-the-mill state university in a run-of-the-mill town. There's not really anything special about Ferris other than their student life, which is pretty good and accepting of high school students. Other than that, the academics aren't top notch, the town itself is boring and lackluster, and the majority of the dorms are old and out of code. Overall, it's an okay college for what it's worth.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A great friendly institution. Would have liked more activities in the morning for those of us that only attend school in the morning instead of the afternoon. A group / organization for new/transfer/commuters students to better adjust to a new school and setting.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris state is an acedemically fine institution. Besides the bad food and living conditions. It is easy to contact teachers and receive help when you need it. Ferris also has very good athletics. Not only are we hard working but we are driven and good at what we do. The football team, and basketball team have went to finals within the last two year

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Ferris is overall a very nice school. The small class size allows professors to get to know students on an individual level. Most professors love to help. The dorms are pretty old, but they are safe and clean. Big Rapids is a small town, but only a 45 minute drive to Grand Rapids.
