Wrapping Up The 2009-10 Academic Year At Ferris

Ferris State University enjoyed another moving series of commencement ceremonies in Big Rapids last weekend as we celebrated this huge step in the lives of young people who will enter communities and help shape Michigan's future.

The 2009-10 academic year started with a series of events recognizing the 125th year of Ferris State University, in September, and continued through last weekend's graduation ceremonies. President David Eisler (pictured) recently saluted this anniversary school year.

"The past several months have been an extraordinary time for the University," Eisler said. "We celebrated our 125th anniversary, witnessed new building on campus and launched innovative new degrees."

President Eisler, as the summer term is soon to begin, already is looking forward to welcoming returning students in the fall to begin the 2010-11 academic year.

"The coming months promise to be no less eventful," he said. "In the fall, we look forward to dedicating our new Michigan College of Optometry building and welcoming students in to our East Campus Suites apartments.

"There will also be both new challenges and opportunities as we bid farewell to some of our senior staff members who elected to take the early retirement option," he added. "Most importantly, there will be a new class of freshmen and transfer students who will be looking for help and guidance as they begin their Ferris studies."
