Welcome to the Ferris State University Veterans Association OrgSync page!

     We are a group of student veterans dedicated to preserving the sense of camaraderie found by serving in the armed forces. In addition, the association continually seeks out opportunities to serve the community of Big Rapids, especially for disabled veterans and/or projects in conjunction with local vet establishments like AMVETS and the American Legion. We invite all students who are veterans or currently enlisted (DEP, National Guard, Reserves, etc.) to attend our weekly meetings on Thursday at 11am in the University Center room 129.
