First Year Coaching

Contacting, Mentoring and Supporting

Coaches are a familiar face to first-year students at Ferris!

Coaches at Orientation

Your first friend at Ferris

The Ferris State Peer Success and Engagement Coaching program connects student leaders with incoming first-year students after the student has completed orientation. Coaches continue to work with students through their first year at Ferris. Peer coaches will help you get involved, meet friends, quickly find solutions, and set you up for success.;

All first-year students will be paired with a Coach and receive information via their Ferris email before the Fall semester begins. The program provides workshops, coffee meet-ups, a bi-weekly newsletter, awards, celebrations, study teams, and much more.
