#Ferr1s Campaign is Coming Together

The News Services and Social Media Team is excited about its ab_nbnewest initiative, the Ferris First campaign, or #Ferr1s.

Ferris First is designed to showcase Ferris State University as the first choice that it is for so many of our students, faculty staff and as the first choice that it was for so many of our student, faculty and staff alumni. This effort will highlight and promote the stories behind why Ferris was a first choice and why it should be a first choice.

Our efforts will promote the achievements, core values, stories and traditions that make people proud of Ferris.
