Nick Campau's Bulldog pride runs deep as he exemplifies true Ferris State University
spirit. Campau's positive energy channels into his numerous collaborations with students,
where he often becomes a big brother, tutor, advocate, confidant, advisor and parent
for so many. During his daily routine, Campau enjoys being available for all students
-- listening to their dreams and aspirations and supporting them as they grow and
develop their own sense of independence. This is most notable through Nick's work
with the Ferris Youth Initiative, providing scholarship and mentoring for low income
orphans and those youth who have "aged out" of foster care.
Campau's community activities include his numerous hours of unselfish service to organizations
such as the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Jaycees, and WISE. He leads by example
and strives to serve others in helping to make the world a better place.
