Who doesn’t like to play with paint? Dozens of students, faculty and staff members joined President David Eisler and our beloved mascot, Brutus, for a “hands-on” approach to the university’s holiday greeting this year.
President Eisler suggested that we do a fun, interactive video message to wish our Ferris family and friends a wonderful holiday season, so our University Advancement and Marketing team rounded up a few folks and some Ferris red and gold paint.
Eight members of the Advancement and Marketing team attended the recent CASE V Conference in Chicago to enhance their professional development and networking opportunities.
CASE, the acronym for the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, is a leading resource for knowledge, standards, advocacy and training in alumni relations, communications, fundraising, marketing and related activities.
The Case V Conference featured top professionals from colleges universities from the Great Lakes area and included more than 80 professional development sessions, extensive networking and keynote speakers.
“Graduating students can pick up their tickets for graduation, purchase their cap and gown, discuss exit counseling, explore graduate degree programs at Ferris, order a class ring and have their resume critiqued by Career Services. Students will also receive a gift from the Ferris Alumni Association as well as information about the future as an alum.
The fair is also an opportunity for graduates to create a video message for their parents, friends and family members that will be played before the graduation ceremony, and have a free digital photo taken of them by the university’s Photographic Services department. There will also be great deals offered to graduates from the university’s bookstore and the Copy Center, as well as the opportunity to win door prizes, hourly.”
