Ferris Pride Day

Everyone in the Ferris State University community is encouraged to wear Ferris Red and take advantage of special discounts at campus shops. The Pride Committee, in collaboration with the Barnes and Noble Bookstore, has decided to sharpen the focus of Ferris Pride Day on the Big Rapids and Grand Rapids campuses. Beginning in the Spring 2020 semester, Pride Day benefits will focus on specific events during the calendar year.

Ferris Barnes and Noble Bookstore Pride Day benefits will now focus on clearance inventory, which includes logoed apparel and non-apparel items, with a larger 50-percent discount by showing your Ferris or KCAD Pride button.
