Fleece blanket drive
Ferris’ Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is hosting their annual fleece blanket drive to support underprivileged children in Mecosta County. The organization is working with Angels of Action to provide warm blankets to children and families during the cold winter weather. Registered student organizations (RSOs), classes, teams and individuals are encouraged to make a $15 donation that will be directly spent on supplies. Cash or check donations can be dropped off in PRSSA’s mailbox in the Center for Leadership, Activities, and Career Services (CLACS) office from Thursday, Oct. 6, through Friday, Nov. 4.

Students interested in winning prizes and participating in an interactive show have the opportunity to take part in Nerdology. Nerdology is an interactive pop-culture trivia competition where student-made teams can compete for prizes including t-shirts, gift cards and more. This event will be taking place near the fireplace downstairs in the University Center Friday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m.

Ferris students, staff and faculty will have the opportunity to pay $5 this week to have two professional headshots taken of them. This service is being offered on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to noon in the IRC connector and on Friday, Oct. 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the University Center.
