The Adopt-an-area-of-Campus program is designed to offer students an opportunity to give back to the Ferris State University Big Rapids campus by maintaining a clean and attractive outdoor campus environment. The program is managed through a partnership between Ferris State University Grounds Department and the Center for Leadership, Activities and Career Services. Groups that are selected to adopt an area of campus will be responsible for regularly volunteering their time to clean the area and alert the Grounds Department of any needed maintenance.
To request an area to adopt, an RSO needs to complete this form.
