This summer, Ferris State University welcomed more than 2,100 new students to campus in Big Rapids who will inject new energy and bring fresh perspectives.
Orientation started on June 14 and covered a 16-day period as the campus pulled together to pull yet another enthusiastic welcoming party for the newest Bulldogs.
New student orientation is a special time of the year for the newbies, but also for the student orientation leaders at Ferris.
“Orientation brings new energy to our campus and we’re excited about the new students who are coming to Ferris and doing what we can to help them make the transition,” Ferris Dean of Student Life Leroy Wright said. “We’re also energized about helping parents. We’re trying to help students feel like Ferris is going to be the place for them and this is going to be their home away from home.”
In this video, University Advancement and Marketing student videographer Chris Wilson took time to visit various facilities as he put together this presentation on Ferris' student orientation leaders.
In shooting this particular video, Chris interviewed Nicholas Campau, coordinator of Student Life at Ferris; Jasmine Williams, a Student Life assistant; Melissa DiVietri, a student orientation leader; and Laura Wroblewski, also a student orientation leader.
