Bulldogs don't sit on the sidelines - they jump right in and get involved. Bulldog Beginnings, our annual kickoff event, will get you in the mix right away. From dance parties and pep rallies to ice cream on the Quad and a chance to snag an on-campus job at our Student Employment fair, there's never a dull moment on campus during Bulldog Beginnings.
On Founders’ Day, the entire Ferris community comes together in celebration of Woodbridge and Helen Gillespie Ferris and their contributions to what is today known as Ferris State University. All events are free and open to students, faculty, staff and community members.
Ferris is home to 14 Division II teams and Division I Men's Hockey. This gives you plenty of opportunities to get in the action.
