Hello everyone who is seeking a good college
Hello everyone who is seeking a good college and somehow end up looking at Ferris State University: Ferris State University is the worst university ever. If you have lots of time to WASTE and want to meet RUDE people like ADMISSIONS and want to continue like that until you graduate, this is the right place/college for you. There are good colleges out there worth your effort, money, and time. Just STAY AWAY from Ferris State, they think about themselves and they think they're giving out education. I dealt with the directors all the way up to the President, and they are all deaf to any problems.

Ferris has some good programs and some notQuite BrightElectrical Engineering
Ferris has some good programs and some not so good. It is a good school for adults returning to school to get a practical education to improve their job prospects. Where I work, Ferris grads are seen as hands-on problem solvers, but GPA is important. No matter what college you go to, hard work and enjoying what you do are key to your future. I enjoyed going to school there and learned a lot, but wasn't really prepared for how to interview or look for jobs or what to expect. I took a low paying job and through hard work, late hours, 5 promotions, getting a 2nd (graduate) degree, and a job change, worked my way up to a decent salary. I sometimes wonder if I had gone to a bigger, well-known school, could I have advanced more quickly, with less pain. If you go to a smaller college, like Ferris, expect to earn the respect that is more easily, and often-times, unfairly given to graduates of the big schools.

Ferris helped me:BrightMath
Ferris helped me: interviews and job offers with blue chip companies (at that time: Westinghouse, Univac, Motorola) and a graduate teaching assistantship offer from Michigan State Univ (Masters in Mathematics) - as well as secondary teaching offers.

Ferris, however, does not have a lot of name recognition around the country so routing for the Bulldogs does not have the cache of routing for the Buckeyes!A student must decide where his emphasis is in terms of academic content and school reputation. Ferris proved to me that hard work and excellent grades will open the doors of the leading companies and graduate schools.
