There is no college life

Dec 16 2011Civil Engineering
There is no college life. No sororities, no parties, no extracurriculars. Everyone leaves on weekends to go to Michigan or Michigan State for this reason.

Great place to be a college student

Great place to be a college student. Excellent, specialized programs. Ferris has a great way of providing small-school "feel," but without reminding you of high school. Big Rapids may not be the glitziest dot on the map, but fits around campus like a glove - you can walk almost anywhere if you want to, but if not, just grab a cab - $4-6 total for all riders. The school got a bad rap regarding student safety a few years ago, but in reality campus and the surrounding area are policed by four different law enforcement bodies, as well as pairs of CJ students patrolling on foot virtually 24 hours/day. The Muskegon River winds right through town with make-shift access points near most apartment complexes and campus, almost as nature's sole purpose for it was the tubing trips that are a Ferris staple.

I am really tired of reading all the

Jan 16 2012Accounting
I am really tired of reading all the negative reviews of Ferris. When I graduated in 1988 the CPA firm I went to work for hired me and an MSU graduate. I ran circles around the MSU graduate! I also passed all four parts of the CPA exam the very first time I sat for it. You will get out of Ferris what you put into it. What I read between the lines in the negative reviews is people want something handed to them all the while having to perform only the minimal amount of work. The housing may be crappy but it keeps you dry and warm who cares how spacious it is. The food may not be home cooking but I have never heard of anyone dying of malnutrition from eating at Ferris. The main point that Ferris should be evaluated on is the integrity and quality of it's educational programs. Not many negative comments on that subject.
