One of the best parts of my job is working with a truly outstanding faculty and staff dedicated to providing your son or daughter a high-quality education and the foundation for a great future. Like you, I also have a student in college (she's a freshman), and I share with you the hopes, dreams and excitement for the future. I'm also new to Ferris, and I am learning all that Ferris has to offer - and it is truly impressive. We have an outstanding and caring faculty, a warm and welcoming community and a collective mission of preparing great graduates, not only for their futures, but for all our futures.
Our small classes are taught by faculty, not graduate students. So our faculty know your student by name. More than half of our classes have fewer than 20 students. This results in more direct contact with professors, more hands-on learning and much stronger student engagement.
Your student will also have many academic support resources to help him or her thrive. Encourage your student to take advantage of these and all that there is here at Ferris. I want you to know that our goal is your goal, and I look forward in just a few years to congratulating your son or daughter as they cross the commencement stage.
