Ferris Welcomes More Than 2,000 Students To Campus

In addition to students, Ferris welcomes family during the summer

BIG RAPIDS – Summertime injects new life into Ferris State University’s campus thanks to new-student orientation which brings approximately 2,100 students over a 16-day period.

Ferris is rolling out the red carpet as it welcomes students, families and friends for a detailed introduction to what the University has to offer. Orientation day is a busy one for students and parents as their day begins early (7:30 a.m.) and ends at 2 p.m.

“Our goal, with orientation, is to do everything we can to make sure students are having a smooth transition to Ferris. We also make sure we’re taking care of parents who have their own questions that we want to be sure to address,” said Leroy Wright, dean of Student Life at Ferris. “Orientation is a big process. One of the great things about orientation is it brings the entire community together as we all work to make orientation successful and smooth for our students and their families.”
