Why Ferris?

Be Ready

Ferris State is recognized regionally and nationally for its high value and engaging instruction:

Ferris' main campus is centrally located in Michigan, providing many students ease by allowing them to be closer to home, travel less on weekends or holidays, and have more time to enjoy campus, friends and the community.

Live in the Grand Rapids area? Don't want to move away from home? Ferris offers weekday commuter shuttle service from Grand Rapids' Central Station to its Big Rapids campus for students who prefer to live at their permanent residences.

For students who may permanently reside too far to be able to commute to the main campus, Ferris State University is fortunately located in an area where the cost of living is lower than competing university locations, which means goods and services are more affordable than in other locations.
