A New Home for Champions
The Ferris State Bulldogs have a championship mindset. They have the personal and
collective commitment to do what it takes to win, the right way. Whether it be in
the classroom, the workplace or in collegiate athletics, if given an opportunity,
our nearly 400 Bulldog student-athletes make the achieving of success a high priority.
Throughout our proud history, our teams have displayed this mindset with frequent
GLIAC, CCHA, WCHA and NCAA championship tournament appearances. Over the past decade
alone, the Bulldogs have racked up many major accomplishments, including 23 conference
regular-season titles, 17 conference tournament championships, eight NCAA regional
crowns, six national semifinal appearances, three berths in a national title game
and the school’s first national championship.
This championship mindset requires an expectation for physical and mental development.
Therefore, our sustained success and lofty expectations rest on our ability to provide
our student-athletes a pathway to success that they can envision during the recruiting
process and experience once they arrive on campus.
Top Facilities to Attract Top-Tier Student-Athletes
With the completion of the Center for Athletics Performance, Ferris State Athletics
will have a new marketing piece for top-tier prospective student-athletes and will
equip FSU’s talented competitors with championship-caliber training and conditioning
facilities for years to come. Nearly all 42,000 square feet of new/renovated space
will be student-experience driven – focusing on the physical and mental needs for
every student athlete on every roster.
The CAP will also be a source of pride for the University and its supporters. A welcoming
presence for thousands of guests annually, its highly visible curb appeal will welcome
fans and athletes from all walks of life. Featured prominently on Big Rapids’ main
artery, State Street, this symbolic structure signifies our commitment to sustaining
well into the future the high level of athletic competition and success that we have
come to expect from the Bulldogs!
