Recruiting Participants for an Alternative Co-Curricular Requirement for Fall 2019

The Honors Program is recruiting honors students for a pilot program in which they take on one large co-curricular commitment in Fall 2019 in place of their cultural events and service hours for the semester. Examples include participating in a Ferris play, a Ferris band, or The Torch or undertaking a significant leadership role. For more information, contact us at honors@ferris.edu or 231-591-2216. If you are interested, sign up here.

Honors Events Committee Members Needed

We are recruiting members of the Honors Student Association Events Committee for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. The Events Committee plans social events for honors students. This type of involvement counts as a leadership role and might be used for the alternative co-curricular requirement pilot program. If you are interested, please contact the Honors Program office.
