Student Foundation and Annual Giving spreads message of philanthropy at Founder’s Day 2016

Whether to promote the Student Foundation, Faculty and Staff Campaign 2016 or philanthropy in general on campus, Student Fundraisers were available on-site at our Founder’s Day table to spread the message.

A presence at these campus events is critical to building a foundation and awareness of philanthropy from our student body to  our alumni and friends.

Recapping the Renaissance Festival

On August 20, Ferris alumni joined the nobles, pirates, Vikings, wizards, rogues and wenches for the opening day of the annual Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly.

The Michigan Renaissance Festival is an interactive outdoor event that focuses on recreating the look and feel of a fictional English village called Hollygrove during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I in the latter half of the 16th Century. It was also Royal Pet day at the festival, with hundreds of very well-behaved dogs joining in the fun.

Alumni guests enjoyed the Pirates Plunder Buffet along with jousting events, theatre performances, unique shopping and craft demonstrations throughout the village.
