Ferris State University & Big Rapids, MI
Ferris State University is located just a few miles from the fringe of the expansive Manistee National Forest, yet less than an hour's drive from the thriving regional hub of Grand Rapids, MI. Ferris State’s flagship campus incorporates more than 880 acres in the city of Big Rapids, MI. Today, Ferris is renowned for its individual, hands-on learning environment, and has become the ninth-largest university in the state, with over 10,000 students enrolled across a number of campuses and studying dozens of disciplines. It has seen a recent increase of nearly 25% in freshman enrollment.
Gotion, a China-based firm, is investing $2.4 billion into an electric vehicle battery plant in the Big Rapids area. Big Rapids/Gotion is planning for a workforce of 2,350 and is teaming up with Ferris State University to prepare the talent necessary to fill their ranks once the project is complete. This budding relationship could be a major boost to the university itself, as numerous degree programs can be involved in this growth, and we may see the creation of new degree programs entirely.
