Visiting Campus

COVID-19 UPDATE: Ferris State University and KCAD take great pride in welcoming our alumni, friends, community members and many others to our campuses to experience our art galleries, library, Dow Center FlexLab, and cultural programming.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, our facilities and programming will be unavailable to our alumni community and to the public. The University is taking this proactive measure to protect everyone’s health and safety.

We deeply value the continuing interest and support of our alumni, friends and many others from our local community and the public at-large. It is our sincere hope we can welcome everyone back onto our campus soon. Until then, we invite you to follow the announcements posted on our website and social media, engage with us virtually and continue to support our students as they move forward with their education.
