Ferris State University is hosting a virtual open house on Wednesday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event is in response to student and parent concerns about how the coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting our state and how to move forward with their education.
At the Zoom-hosted event, students can talk to Ferris staff from the main campus as well as our Ferris offices across the state of Michigan. Off-campus locations include: Grand Rapids, at Grand Rapids Community College; from Dowagiac, at Southwestern Michigan College; Traverse City, at Northwestern Michigan College; Lansing, at Lansing Community College; the Detroit area, at the Warren office; and at the offices in the Flint and Saginaw areas.
Ferris offers degree completion programs at 22 locations statewide and online. Students can get answers about programs, admissions, financial aid and will even have the opportunity to be admitted at the event.
“We understand there are many unknowns about when the state will open up and our lives will get back to 'normal.' However, students should not stop planning their future. Ferris is open and continuing to serve students – just in a different way. This open house is an opportunity for future students to get support as they move forward,” said Steve Reifert, dean of Extended and International Operations, which includes the Ferris Statewide and Online unit.
