What We Call Home
Ferris State University is a vibrant, safe and friendly campus nestled in Big Rapids, Michigan, a city of about 12,000 residents, where you’ll find small-town comforts and big-city amenities.
Our campus combines historic buildings and monuments with state-of-the-art learning and recreational facilities, all framed by beautiful landscaping. We invite you to take a virtual tour of our campus.
It’s an easy walk from your student’s residence hall to class, to eat or work out, or to attend an event. From the scenic Michigan Art Walk to the Card Wildlife Education Facility, Ferris’ campus offers a great deal to explore.
Our beautiful new David L. Eisler Center, a cutting edge student union that offers a warm and inviting location where students gather, relax, study and enjoy a variety of dining experiences.
We are proud to be a globally diverse university and campus, and believe that learning from each other is one of the best parts of the college experience. Our offices of Diversity and Inclusion, Multicultural Student Services and International Education offer many opportunities for learning and intercultural exchange.
