Following the fire that destroyed Old Main, then-President Byron J. Brophy declared "Ferris would go on!" Indeed it did. Like the mythological phoenix that rose from the ashes, the then Ferris Institute has grown to become a respected university. The Phoenix Society recognizes individuals who make a $1000,000 cumulative commitment to help lead the university into the future.
Members receive a distinctive memento and are invited to smaller and more personal gatherings, as well as the benefits of membership in the Crimson and Gold, Annual Leadership, Presidents, Founders and Old Main societies.
Please contact Destiny Gorby for more information about the Phoenix Society.
