Plaid & Purple for Fall Fashion

As the days in Big Rapids begin to grow colder, clothing styles begin to change across campus.

Flip-flops and shorts are starting to be packed away in boxes to take back to Mom and Dad’s house to be stored until spring rolls around. These items will be swapped for thick winter jackets and Ugg boots.

Coming Out Together

Ferris State University organizations make conversations about sexual orientation an open, diverse, and all-inclusive campus affair.

Brian Kelley, advisor of Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance (DSAGA), a registered student organization on campus, said, “I definitely feel that because it’s an educational environment at Ferris it’s an open environment.”

Kelley went on to say that the Office of Multicultural Student Services (OMSS) and the Office of Diversity Inclusion (ODI) have worked hard to make Ferris a more open environment and educate students on GLBT issues.
