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.
