Newest Ferris First Videos Released

As we continue our series highlighting alumni, faculty, staff and students who made Ferris State University their first choice, our two most recently-released videos focus on one of our more visible staff members and a student who is going beyond the classroom to maximize his University experience.

Bruce Borkovich is director of the Department of Public Safety. In his #Ferr1s video, Bruce discusses why he was attracted to Ferris and how he and his family have found a home here in the community. He also talks about what he loves most about his job.

Michael Corn is a man on a mission — inside and outside of the classroom. A senior in Applied Speech Communication, Corn is also a hard-working man out of the classroom in work that he is doing for several offices around campus, including the Alumni Association, the Athletics Department, the Torch, and even News Services and Social Media.

We hope you enjoy watching these videos as much as we enjoy putting them together.

Web Content Manager Contributes to Beyond Diversity Event

Ted Halm, Web Content Manager, hosted a table on “Diversity in Age” and “Ageism in America” at the highly interactive exhibit,  Beyond Diversity. The event featured  27 different subjects focusing on diversity and filled the IRC Corridor on Sunday, Oct. 19, 2014.


“The Beyond initiative is in its third year and the goal is to encourage students to go beyond their comfort zone, to go beyond what they’re learning in the classroom and connect it to experiences outside of the classroom,” said Lisa vonReichbauer, assistant director of the Office of International Education.


Beyond Diversity is a true testament to Ferris State University’s core values of  “Diversity” and “Collaboration,” as several departments and individuals from across campus contributed their efforts and expertise to the initiative.
