ferris state university: A Jerry Scoby Handshake... - 10/27/12 03:07 AM
I often joke around about my deals being stronger than a Jerry Scoby Handshake. If you ever are in Big Rapids, take a minute to track down Jerry Scoby and experience his handshake for yourself. Usually he can be found on the Campus of Ferris State University, where he is Vice President for Administration and Finance. He doesn't over power you with his teeth showing, it is simply a firm handshake that makes you remember him. Somehow in that two second handshake trust is formed and you just know inside he means what he says. Some people in life have those signature moves, … (4 comments)

ferris state university: Ferris State University Student Home Buyers - 12/07/10 12:02 AM

Congrat's for being accepted to Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI. One of your many new challenges is to find a place to call home while attending school. There are always the dorms, and for some , that is the only option available. Ferris has restrictions on who can live off campus and while the price of the dorms seems pricey it is your only choice.
