Student Events

Make Memories 

Events and activities are an important part of the college experience. They are opportunities to meet others, relax and decompress, connect with the community and get to know campus.

Events generally support one of the Bulldog Learning Outcomes:

  • Interpersonal Development
  • Career Readiness
  • Holistic Wellness
  • Cultrual and Global Intelligence
  • Community Engagement and Social Responsibility

With more than 200 events each semester (almost all free), you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved, find friends, and make memories at Ferris. The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) engages students in a variety of events and provides event planning resources and guidance.
