Trying to keep up with everything that happens on a college campus can be stressful, but that’s where social media can come in handy. Luckily for Ferris students, many departments and organizations have Instagram pages that keep students informed. Here are a few that you should check out.
Students can glean plenty of information from Ferris’ official Instagram page. On this page students can find content such as updates on campus construction, countdowns to important dates and other information like President Bill Pink’s “Link with Pink Tour.”
If you’re a student living on campus, this is definitely an account that you’ll want to be following. The official Ferris Housing page has information on what students will want to bring to campus during move-in, when and where to get parking passes, student move-in dates and the occasional giveaway for items that would be great for dorm life. They also post about events that Housing takes part in during the school year, like open skate nights at Ewigleben Ice Arena.
If you want to keep up with anything that involves food on campus, then you’re going to want to follow the Ferris Dining page. Much like other Ferris pages, this one keeps students updated on events, special days, such as “National Donut Day” in June where they gave out free donuts, and giveaways. Dining also posts special holiday menus and special occasion foods that are available in the dining halls.
Keeping up with the campus store is always a great idea. Ferris Outfitters makes sure to keep everyone up to date on new merchandise, changes to store hours and good causes to support through their Ferris Outfitters Shop to Support program. For example, Ferris Outfitters posted on Aug. 10, that they’re supporting Ferris’ LGBTQ+ Resource Center from Aug. 15 to Sept. 16. They’ve also been posting “Fall Picks” that allow students to check out some of the new merchandise that’s in store for the start of the fall semester.
Other Great Pages
Alongside these pages, there are a bunch of other pages that are specifically tailored to certain students. Students at the College of Arts and Sciences can follow @ferriscas and students in the College of Business can follow @ferriscob in order to keep up with information from their specific colleges. There are also pages for Ferris’ different centers, organizations and offices. These include pages for the LGBTQ+ Resource Center (@fsu.lgbtq) and the Office of Multicultural Student Services (@fsuomss).
Whether you are a returning student or an incoming freshman, you can find multitudes of information on the university’s Instagram pages. All you have to do is give them a follow.
