Ferris State needs your help to win the space race

Dropbox, everyone’s favorite file hosting service that allows cloud storage between all of our devices, is having a university-themed contest.

Universities are separated into divisions for sports, meaning we are in the GLIAC division competing against Saginaw Valley, Grand Valley, Michigan Tech and more. By verifying your email address, users can earn additional GBs of storage space (on top of the five GB you get with a standard account).

Every person who joins the space race will get a point added to the school’s total while two points are added when someone goes through the “get started” guide. With Ferris having a certain number of points, all the Bulldogs who have signed up get an additional three GBs of storage.

Universities are ranked with how they shape up against schools in their same conference, amongst the United States, as well as worldwide. So although we won’t reach numbers like MIT or UC Berkeley, we still can compete at our own level.

Currently, Ferris is in fourth place with a large gap between the next highest university, Grand Valley. To join the space race and do your part for the university and your fellow student body, visit
