Just the Beginning
Bulldog Beginnings was a success in 2023! We welcomed many new students to campus, celebrated the start of the school year, cheered on the reigning National Champions to their first victory of the season, and more.
Football home opener
The 2022 National Champions, the Ferris State Bulldogs, took on Mercyhurst at Top Taggart Field. Ferris started the season with a win, 54-12.
Students got to learn about the 200+ RSOs on campus, ranging from academic programs to club sports to faith based to special interest. There were also businesses and other resources from the Big Rapids area.
Students spent their first Friday at Ferris with the Bulldog Welcome. The Quad was filled with lots of carnival games, performances, slides, and even a mechanical bulldog!
DEC Late Night
Students got to have a fun night on campus, at the David L. Eisler Center. They got to sing karaoke, play bingo, make crafts, and play arcade games.
Campus started buzzing again and students were ready to get involved. The Student Rec Center was filled with club sports representatives and info tables for prospective players.
