Ferris Traditions

 At Ferris State University we cherish our traditions and the value it brings to our campus and community. For more information on each event, check out the tabs below. 


  • Ferris turns up the school spirit for our annual Homecoming! All week long, there are activities happening around campus to be celebrated by our students, alumni, staff, and community. 


  • A schedule of events has been developed to bring Ferris State University students, faculty and staff together with the Big Rapids community to bring both new and continuing students into their academic year.

  • Torchbearer was created to recognize the students, faculty, and organizations who go above and beyond on campus and in their Big Rapids Community.  


  • Each semester the Career Center holds a Career and Internship Fair to give current students and alumni the opportunity to network with employers on campus.
