Students celebrating Bulldog Beginnings

Bulldog Beginnings

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.

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. Whether you're at Top Taggart Field cheering on the reigning national champions or in the stands at Ewigleben Ice Arena, the student section is the best seat in the house. We'll see you at the game.
