2012 Welcome Back Week

Making Connections

Making Connextions, the theme of the 2012-2013 Welcome Back Week (PDF 181KB), reflects what is a core essence of academe. Our and our students’ experiences at Ferris State depend upon making connections – connections with each other, our communities, and the world. We connect theory with practice, hypotheses with evidence, and teaching with learning. As members of the academy, we make connections within and among our academic disciplines. And finally, our understanding of ourselves and the world we live in relies on making connections – connections with beliefs, experiences, and more.
