Ferris State University students will have to pay a little bit more for hosing and food services next year. Ferris State Trustees in a special session approved a housing and dining rate increase of 1.9% beginning in the fall 2011 semester. Room and dining rates for residence hall students will increase from $8,580 to $8,744, annually, for a standard occupancy room and unlimited meals seven days a week on the bronze and silver plans. The increase will allow the university to continue to provide students with quality and flexibility in housing and dining options, and to maintain facilities. Jerry Scoby, Vice President for Administration and Finance says the goal is to set rates as low as possible to minimize the cost of attendance for students and to better position the rates with the other public universities in Michigan,”
